The article focuses on the nuclear power generation markets in Canada and Latin America. Canada supplies over 20 per cent of the global uranium demand and Canada Deuterium Uranium (Candu) reactor. There are 18 operating reactors in New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec while in Latin America, nuclear power is concentrated in Argentina, Mexico and Brazil. It also mentions that six nuclear reactors in Latin America supply 2 percent of the region's total electricity generation, with new builds in Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.
