Bruce Power Visitor Centre Numbers Up

Tiverton | by Craig Power  

It appears 2016 was a very busy for the Bruce Power Visitor's Centre in Tiverton.

It appears 2016 was a very busy for the Bruce Power Visitor's Centre in Tiverton.

Spokesperson John Peevers tells Bayshore Broadcasting News the numbers have been steadily climbing over the past few years.

He says they're up by more than three thousand people since 2010 and just last year alone (2016) they had more tan 16,000 people come through the doors.

Peevers attributes the growing number of visitors to not only an interest in nuclear power generation, but the fact tat Bruce Power has increased their bus tours of their sites along the shores of Lake Huron.

Many of the visitors are vacationers who come to the shores of Lake Huron in summer, tourists and of course many residents of South Bruce and surrounding areas as well.

Nuclear Power remains somewhat of a mystery to some people so having a place like the Bruce Power visitor Centre is key in educating people about nuclear power generation and the industry as a whole.

Peevers notes the Visitor Centre at Bruce Power is continually being updated to keep it current with the times by making it kid friendly and more interactive for the public.

A new Welcome Wall was put in place last year near the front entrance to display the powerful connection Bruce Power has to the communities surrounding it.

The Bruce Power Visitor Centre is open to the public all year round from Monday to Friday with plans in the works to keep it open seven days a week during the summer months.
