Environmental Protection

Calian Nuclear has significant expertise in modelling and assessing the radiological impact of nuclear facilities and activities on the environment. Calian Nuclear has performed several full scope environmental impact assessments for existing nuclear facilities, new facilities on existing sites, changes in plant configuration, waste management programs and licensing renewals.

Radiation Protection

Calian Nuclear provides support to the nuclear industry, government and defense organizations for the development, implementation and certification of radiation protection and dosimetry programs. Our team has extensive experience in designing radiation shielding and evaluating its effectiveness for all forms of ionizing radiation (i.e., alpha, beta, gamma and neutrons).

Decommissioning and Waste Management

Calian Nuclear has experience planning, performing and evaluating the results of characterization and final status surveys in accordance with industry best practices (MARSSIM, CSA, EPRI). Our team also provides the scientific background to support clients with their licensing submissions to regulatory agencies and the technical skills to analyze survey data to provide hard evidence that clearance levels or waste acceptance criteria have been achieved.

Regulatory Affairs and Licensing

Calian Nuclear has extensive knowledge of nuclear regulatory requirements and standards, as well as comprehensive experience in supporting regulatory activities both in Canada and internationally, including the interpretation of regulatory requirements, development of a licensing strategy and providing support throughout its execution, as well as documenting a licensing basis in a safety case or a safety report.

Emergency Preparedness and Training

Calian Nuclear is a leader in the provision of Nuclear Emergency Response (NER) training and exercises. Calian Nuclear offers a full lifecycle approach to the conduct of drills and exercises, on both national and international platforms, by supporting the design, development, facilitation and evaluation of these exercises. Calian Nuclear also delivers comprehensive NER and nuclear power plant operations training courses.

Our success is rooted in our people.
