BWXT Volunteer Strong

At BWXT, we believe that healthy communities are strong communities. Through BWXT Volunteer Strong, our employees have the opportunity to help build stronger communities for those that live and work in them by volunteering time and expertise to local causes that are important to the communities in Arnprior, Peterborough and Toronto. 

We take great pride in giving back to our communities. If you would like to talk to us about an opportunity, please contact us at questions@bwxt.com

We will be sharing stories and photos from our Volunteer Strong activities so keep coming back and see what we’ve been up to!
