Northern Support Remains Strong
In November 2018, Fast Consulting conducted a public opinion survey for Cameco Corporation and Orano Canada to measure public support for the uranium mining industry in Saskatchewan.
Cameco is pleased that support remains high among survey respondents both province-wide and in the North, despite significant challenges being faced by the industry due to persistent low uranium prices on the international market:
- 80% of respondents province-wide support uranium mining in northern Saskatchewan, including 38% who strongly support the industry. This is in line with 82% in 2017.
- 82% of Northern respondents support the uranium mining industry (43% strongly supportive), up from 73% in 2017.
