Canada has pledged to phase out coal by 2030, reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% to 45% below 2005 levels by 2030, create a net-zero electricity grid by 2035 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. This means that Canada will need to triple the amount of electricity it produces over the next thirty years. To address the climate emergency and meet growing energy demands, we need all available sources of clean energy – including nuclear energy. There is no realistic pathway to net-zero emissions by 2050 without nuclear. Net zero needs nuclear due to the scale of the challenge to decarbonize our economies. Nuclear can provide the clean electricity needed to decarbonize electricity grids and power the electrification of transportation and buildings. It also has the potential to decarbonize heat and power in Canada’s industrial sectors. CNA2022 will bring together industry experts to explore and advance nuclear’s role as an essential partner in achieving Canada’s climate targets and reaching Net Zero.

Building workforce capacity and capability will be critical for Canada’s energy sector as it transitions to net-zero.Organizations who lead in this work will be considered preferred employers in the sector reducing talent acquisition costs, improving retention and building greater organizational resiliency. Workforce planning and development is no longer just the ‘job’ of the human resources function but a critical business imperative in which all managers and leaders should engage.
