Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) is pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Cameron as General Manager of the Historic Waste Program Management Office in Port Hope, Ontario. Cameron is responsible for overseeing work on all projects and programs delivered through CNL’s Port Hope office, including the Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI).
PHAI activities on all large sites, with the bulk of the low-level radioactive waste, are currently underway and focus is being placed on the completion of privately owned properties. Cameron, a local Port Hope resident is positioned to take on this next phase of the project. “Scott is very well suited for the Port Hope role because he is familiar with the community. I expect the PHAI to continue moving forward at its current pace,” shared Monica Steedman, CNL Vice President Environmental Remediation Management.
Cameron was most recently the Acting Deputy General Manager for CNL at Whiteshell Laboratories Restoration Project in Manitoba. With over 30 years of invaluable experience in the Canadian nuclear industry, working in management roles at active plants in Darlington and Pickering, Cameron brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his new role in Port Hope.
Cameron replaces Mark Hughey, who completed his tenure at CNL on January 26, 2024. The PHAI achieved several milestones under Hughey’s leadership. These include completing the remediation of the Strachan Street Ravine, the Viaducts, two industrial waste sites, and residential properties in Port Hope.
“I am excited to be working with this knowledgeable group of professionals to deliver one of the world’s largest and complex environmental cleanups in my hometown,” said Cameron.
