Pickering Nuclear Generating Station

The Pickering nuclear generating station is Ontario’s smallest commercial nuclear facility. Its eight CANDU pressurized heavy water (PHWR) reactors – the smallest in Canada – are owned and operated by Ontario Power Generation (OPG). Despite their smaller size, the CANDU units at the Pickering station can power up to 2.5 million households.
