COG's many partner organizations, in Canada and worldwide, allow it to leverage the expertise and efforts of other important nuclear resources. In Canada, these include organizations such as the Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA), Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS), University Network of Excellence in Nuclear Engineering (UNENE) and Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI). COG partners with leading international industry organizations such as the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as well as international governmental organizations, notably the practical arrangement with two divisions in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Nuclear Safety and Nuclear Energy. In 2020, COG partnered with the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and works with the Nuclear Energy Institute on advancing SMRs and innovation through advanced manufacturing.
Strong partnerships with other industry organizations in Canada and internationally make COG a highly-effective portal and lever to get the most from these resources to benefit COG members, participants and the broader nuclear industry.
