      MONTREAL: June 6, 2022 - Candu Energy Inc., a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group (TSX: SNC), is pleased to announce the appointment of seasoned nuclear industry executive Stephanie Smith as Senior Vice-President of Engineering for SNC-Lavalin's Canadian nuclear business. Based in Toronto, she will report to Bill Fox, Executive Vice-President, Nuclear, Canada. The appointment took effect on June 6th. Ms. Smith takes over from Kevin Jones, who is retiring. He will remain accessible to SNC-Lavalin in a consulting capacity going forward.

      "I'm thrilled to welcome Stephanie to SNC-Lavalin," said Bill Fox, Executive Vice-President, Nuclear, Canada, SNC-Lavalin. "Attracting top talent to our nuclear business, one of SNC-Lavalin's key end-markets, ensures we can continue to deliver best-in-class service to the nuclear utilities around the world offering solutions to Net Zero and energy security challenges. Stephanie's expertise will ensure we remain at the forefront of nuclear engineering in a rapidly advancing marketplace. I'd also like to thank Kevin Jones for his leadership and contributions over many years. We wish him a well-deserved retirement."

      As SVP of Engineering, Ms. Smith will be responsible for driving SNC-Lavalin's Canadian nuclear business toward its strategic objectives across profitability, technical excellence, and innovation. She will build on the outcomes-driven environment across the business, with a focused approach to performance management. Ms. Smith will also focus on transitioning the nuclear engineering group from an operations-oriented model to a client-service driven, competitive and growth-oriented culture. Her oversight will include the design and delivery of CANDU® reactors, technical support for the fleet of CANDU reactors around the world, the development of advanced fuel technologies for implementation in international markets, and support for small modular reactors (SMRs).
