About Global First Power
Global First Power is a Canadian company working to develop and deploy the future of nuclear, a small modular reactor (SMR).
Global First Power (GFP) is in the business of developing and deploying small modular reactor technology as an alternative to fossil-fuel generation in remote communities and mines that are not connected to provincial electricity grids.
GFP intends to provide a new form of safe, clean, reliable, and commercially-viable energy to Canada by owning and operating the next generation of nuclear technology. GFP is a federally-incorporated Canadian company located in Ontario.
Our current project, the Micro Modular Reactor (MMR®) Project at Chalk River, will demonstrate a safe, clean, reliable, and commercially-viable nuclear energy option for heavy industry and remote communities that rely on diesel.
A Joint Partnership
For several years, GFP has worked in collaboration with Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC®) and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) to prepare for and initiate the Micro Modular Reactor (MMR® ) Project at Chalk River. On June 3, 2020, the three companies announced they had formed a joint venture partnership which will build, own and operate the proposed MMR at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ Chalk River site.
USNC – a company committed to bringing safe, reliable, and secure nuclear energy to world markets. Based on Seattle, Washington, they supply the commercial, world-class MMR® technology with the patented Fully Ceramic Micro-encapsulated (FCM®) fuel anticipated to be used for the Chalk River project.

OPG – a company with 50 years of excellence in the nuclear industry. OPG is one of the most diverse electricity generators in North America. OPG produces about half of the electricity Ontarians rely on every day, and its clean, safe, power costs an average of 40% less than other generators in Ontario. Learn more.
