WiN-Canada has organized three tours for Tuesday, October 24th, 2017. The cost of the tour is separate from the registration fee. You can register for one of the tours at the same time that you register for the  conference. 

Tour #1: CNL Tour - CNL is Canada’s premier nuclear science and technology organization. CNL is a world leader in developing peaceful and innovative applications from nuclear technology through its expertise in physics, metallurgy, chemistry, biology and engineering. The Chalk River site hosts 17 nuclear facilities as well as more than 50 scientific and research laboratories, many of which are unique in the world. Guests will depart from the Brookstreet Hotel at 8:00am and will return back at 5:00pm. Lunch and transportation are included in the cost of the tour. Cost: $40 plus HST. Timing subject to change

Tour #2: Canada Science and Technology Museum Tour - Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a behind the scenes tour of Ingenium's artifact collection.  Ingenium is the steward of Canada’s largest and most comprehensive museum collection devoted to science and technology. It preserves and provides access to extensive holdings of artifacts and library and archival materials that document this priceless material heritage. Comprising over 100,000 objects and hundreds of thousands of books, historic photographs, and archival documents, the collection is particularly strong in the areas of transportation (air, space, land, marine), physical sciences, medicine, communications, agriculture, and natural resources. Transportation is included in the cost of the tour. Guests will depart from the Brookstreet Hotel at 8:30am and will return back at 12:00pmCost: $40 plus HST. Timing subject to change

Tour #3: CNSC Laboratory Tour - The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is Canada’s nuclear regulator. The CNSC laboratory was modernized and upgraded at its current location on Limebank Road in Ottawa in 2010.  The CNSC laboratory plays an important role in CNSC’s verification of licensee compliance programs, relating to, radiation protection, environmental protection, safeguards and emergency preparedness. The laboratory has three main functions: providing sample analysis, calibration of radiation detecting and measuring instruments and maintaining the repository of radioactive sources. The laboratory also allows the CNSC to work with universities, national and international laboratories, and other government laboratories to provide research and training opportunities for students and scientists working in areas of nuclear and radiological safety and security. The laboratory was accredited to ISO17025 by Standards Council of Canada in 2016 for calibration of gamma survey meters.

The CNSC looks forward to welcoming WIN members on this tour.  The tour will be interactive, and led by CNSC laboratory specialists. The following aspects of the laboratory will be covered on this tour:  instrument calibration;  radioanalytical laboratory; sample shipping and receiving; and inorganic analytical chemistry laboratory. 

The tour will also highlight the laboratory’s role in the CNSC’s Independent Environmental Monitoring Program (IEMP).  The CNSC implemented its IEMP  to verify that the public and environment around CNSC-regulated nuclear facilities are not adversely affected by releases to the environment. This verification is achieved through independent sampling and analysis by the CNSC.  The CNSC field technician for this program will demonstrate her use of the sampling equipment for various samples collected as part of this program (ex. air, water, soil), weather permitting. Transportation is included in the cost of the tour. Guests will depart from the Brookstreet Hotel at 8:30am and will return back at 12:00pmCost: $40 plus HST.  Timing subject to change
