Environmentalists For Nuclear Energy (Canada) Inc. is a Canadian federally incorporated not-for-profit organization whose objects are:

- to achieve its purposes through the publication of books, pamphlets and CD-ROM's; the conduct of lectures to the public; the participation in public and written debate; the contribution of scientific, technical, and generally educational communications to the press, to the audio-visual media, and to other publics; the creation, operation and maintenance of multilingual internet sites; and appearances at public and professional fairs and exhibitions.
History of EFN-CANADA
The international association of Environmentalists For Nuclear Energy (EFN-INTERNATIONAL) was created in 1996 by the famous environmentalist Bruno Comby (author of the bestseller: "Environmentalists For Nuclear Energy") (a Canadian edition is in print) after the publication of his book and the debate that followed in 1995.
EFN-INTERNATIONAL currently gathers over 10.000 members and supporters, with 300 local correspondents throughout the world in 60 countries, on five continents.
In 2006 some Canadian citizens and environmentalists decided to create EFN-CANADA to inform the Canadian public. The founding President of EFN-CANADA is Rodney Anderson.The Honorary Chairman of EFN-CANADA is Dr Patrick Moore, the former director of Greenpeace international during many years.
The point of view of EFN-CANADA
To stop polluting our atmosphere, prevent global warming, and replace dwindling supplies of oil, EFN-CANADA promotes energy conservation, renewable energies, sustainable lifestyles, and the use of clean nuclear energy.
EFN-CANADA considers that environmental opposition to nuclear energy is a major mistake. If it is well designed, well built and well managed, nuclear energy is safe and clean, does not emit polluting gases into the atmosphere, uses few construction materials per kWh (compared to solar and wind energy), produces very little waste (which is confined and can be recycled), and produces almost no carbon dioxide, therefore does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.
EFN-CANADA works at informing the public of the environmental benefits of nuclear energy, the cleanest energy resource massively available to humanity.
EFN-CANADA considers that environmental opposition to nuclear energy is the greatest misunderstanding and mistake of the century.

Fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal) the dominant energy today, are being rapidly exhausted, and are the cause of wide scale pollution of our environment, while nuclear and renewable energies are much cleaner : they have absolutely no global effect, produce only very small amounts of waste that are easy to manage, don't affect the planet's climate, and these energy sources (renewable energies and clean nuclear energy), if well managed, are sustainable in the very long term.
Together we can build a better world
WITH CLEAN NUCLEAR ENERGY !
