January 31, 2024

Ontario Minister of Energy, Todd Smith, and Pickering Mayor Kevin Ashe, yesterday said the Pickering nuclear station age extension project is expected to create thousands of new jobs.

Yesterday, the minister announced that Ontario government is supporting Ontario Power Generation’s (OPG) plan to refurbish Pickering Nuclear Generating Station’s ‘B’ units (units 5-8).

“The refurbishment of Pickering would create thousands of new jobs and help produce at least another 30 years of safe, reliable and clean electricity to power the next major international investment, the new homes we are building and industries as they grow and electrify,” said Minister Smith.

“This transformative project is anticipated to create thousands of new jobs in Pickering and across Ontario, and generate at least 30 more years of safe, reliable, and clean electricity,” said Mayor Ashe.
