Southwestern Ontario Isotope Coalition launches in the Clean Energy Frontier

Today, the official launch event of the Southwestern Ontario Isotope Coalition (SOIC) took place at BWXT in Owen Sound.

Co-hosted by the City of Owen Sound, the Canadian Nuclear Isotope Council (CNIC), and the Nuclear Innovation Institute (NII), the event brought together regional isotope champions, elected government officials, and community stakeholders for a thought-provoking panel discussion and regional collaborative partnership announcements.

The Southwestern Ontario Isotope Coalition was formed in June with the goal of bringing together the region’s many strengths in supporting Canada’s national imperative and vision to increase the production, development, and use of medical isotopes in the global fight against cancer.

Said Jessica Linthorne, NII's Chief Operating Officer and Co-Chair of the Coalition:

“Isotope production in our region offers an incredible opportunity for us to work collaboratively to understand and leverage the potential within the industry. Innovative technology, training and advanced research is happening now close to home, so by bringing these partners together we’ll be stronger.”
