CANTEACH Project Overview​

​CANTEACH is a non-commercial project supported by all Canadian nuclear utilities, major universities and industry associations.  Most of the project input comes from volunteer contributions of documentation, training courses and lectures provided by CANTEACH partners (view Project Model) and administered by CANTEACH Management.  More about the CANTEACH Project in:

A note of thanks to Dan Meneley, founder of CANTEACH. From the inception of CANTEACH to mid 2007, Dan has been working hard to build this technical library and without him it simply would not have happened. We at CANTEACH would like to express our deep appreciation to Dan and wish him well on his new ventures. Thanks for everything Dan.

The sponsorship of AECL for the initial few years of CANTEACH is gratefully acknowledged. The role of AECL was key to the creation of CANTEACH. In 2002, COG assumed sponsorship of CANTEACH and through their direct financial and personnel support, the site expanded and received substantial improvements. We are indebted to the dedication of Malcolm Lightfoot (Project Manager 2002-2008) and Yulia Kosarenko (Webmaster 2002-2004) for project administration. From 2009 to 2011, UNENE assumed sponsorship for the Academic Director position. Thanks are extended to all supporting institutions for making the CANTEACH possible for the benefit of all.

Document Format

It is essential that an effective format be established and maintained for the development and presentation of technical material. Here are some guidelines:

  • General notes (off site) on establishing and maintaining an effective format for the development and presentation of technical material.

  • Why use pdf and the web? (pdf 101kb) - promoting the notion of a single source of material for all uses with specific reference to CANTEACH issues.

  • CANTEACH specific: Suggested format for technical documents (pdf 11kbMS Word doc 36kb). Use the Word doc as a template.
