Those who live in the Upper Ottawa Valley or along the Ottawa River know it is a pristine landscape with a diverse and thriving environment. One of the top mission goals of the Chalk River Laboratories is to contribute field-leading nuclear research and life-saving nuclear medicine while protecting the environment surrounding the facilities. Thanks to the dedicated staff at the Chalk River Laboratories, they have continuously delivered on their goal of sound environmental stewardship. If the goal of any industry should be to create jobs while protecting the environment, then Chalk River is on a hot scoring streak.
