Advancing Human Health.
Saving Lives.

For more than a half-century, Canada has led the way internationally when it comes to the research, development and production of medical isotopes and pharmaceuticals. The world has counted on us and the Canadian Nuclear Isotope Council was established to bring together all of the stakeholders with a mission to ensure we continue this leadership role in improving people’s lives.

What are Isotopes

Isotopes are atoms with the same number of protons as each other, but different numbers of neutrons.

A leader at home, and abroad

Canada has long been a leader in isotope production and has fostered an innovative industry that has saved millions of lives around the world
