Dear CNLO Members

As you may be aware, the WNA Working Groups will be meeting in Toronto on Tuesday, April 25, including the Legal Working Group (see details below). 
WNA has been kind enough to invite CNLO members to participate as observers in the WNA Legal Working Group meeting.  This is a unique and exciting opportunity for our members, as typically only WNA members are allowed to participate in the Working Group meetings, which are held in various international locations on a rotating basis.We believe this event would provide our members with an excellent opportunity to meet and benefit from the exchange of ideas with our international colleagues active in the nuclear law space.

Please advise Magda Hanebach, the CNLO Secretary ( at your earliest convenience if you plan on attending. 


Best regards,

Ahab Abdel-Aziz

CNLO President
