- Promoting discussion and networking opportunities
- Informing participants of opportunities and timelines
- Providing a forum for interactive breakout sessions dedicated to:
- Becoming “fit for SMRs”
- Industry support
- Indigenous partnerships
The daylong event will begin at 9am and close with a reception from 4-5pm. Doors open at 8:30am for registration.
CME and FNPA are co-hosting the event to maximize efforts in connecting the Indigenous, manufacturing and business communities.
Tri-party members continue to collaborate in areas of supply chain development, shared infrastructure, common fleet services and energy park opportunities, positioning the province as a manufacturing hub that supports the aSMR market.
