The Society for the Preservation of Canada’s Nuclear Heritage

Preserving and Communicating Canada’s Nuclear Heritage

The Society for the Preservation of Canada’s Nuclear Heritage was founded in 2017 in Deep River, Ontario. The Society’s goal is the collection, safeguarding, and promotion of documents, artefacts, memorabilia, and knowledge associated with the history of the Canadian nuclear industry. We are a non-profit charitable organization.


Canadian nuclear history began with Ernest Rutherford and his Nobel Prize winning work at McGill University in the early 1900s. The nuclear power industry, however, grew out of Canada’s efforts during the Second World War.

The Museum

The Society is hosted at 51 Poplar St., Deep River on the traditional unceded lands of the Anishinabewaki and Omàmìwininìwag (Algonquin) First Nations. We receive interested members of the public by appointment at our facility. We plan also eventually to host educational programs, workshops, and historical researchers.
