- AECL’s Chalk River Laboratory 135 MWth NRU
- AECL’s Chalk River Laboratory zero-energy test reactor ZED-2
- University of Alberta (Edmonton) 20 kWth SLOWPOKE-2 reactor
- Saskatchewan Research Council (Saskatoon) 20 kWth SLOWPOKE-2 reactor
- Royal Military College (Kingston) 20 kWth SLOWPOKE-2 reactor
- Dalhousie University (Halifax) 20 kWth SLOWPOKE-2 reactor
- L’Ecole Polytechnique (Montreal)
- 5 MWth MTR-type reactor at McMaster University
A Canadian-supplied SLOWPOKE-2 is also operated at the International Centre for Environmental and Nuclear Sciences, Kingston, Jamaica, and two SLOWPOKE-2 units – the original prototype at the University of Toronto and one at MDS Nordion’s facility in Kanata – have been shut down).
The SLOWPOKE-2 is a low-energy, pool-type research reactor designed by AECL. It uses passive cooling and safety systems, and is licensed to run unattended for short periods of time (e.g.. overnight). AECL also designed a scaled-up version (2-10 MWth) of SLOWPOKE for district heating. See related FAQ.
The latest research-reactor technology developed by AECL is called MAPLE (see related FAQ).
