Canada India Foundation Congratulates Governments of Canada and India on Civil 
Nuclear Agreement Milestone 
TORONTO, April 9, 2013 /CNW/ - CanadaIndia Foundation (CIF), a not-for-profit 
public policy organization committed to strengthening of CanadaIndia 
relations, congratulated the Governments of Canada and India for signing the 
Appropriate Arrangement pursuant to the CanadaIndia Nuclear Cooperation 
Agreement, which will take effect as soon as the Nuclear Cooperation Agreement 
is brought to force by the two countries. 
Welcoming the achievement of this significant milestone in the Nuclear 
Cooperation Agreement, Barj S. Dhahan, Chair, CanadaIndia Foundation, said 
"CIF has been a consistent vocal champion of the civil nuclear agreement 
between Canada and India and had made it the primary policy recommendation at 
the CanadaIndia Energy Forum organized by CIF in 2009". "It is significant 
that the announcement of the signing of the Appropriate Arrangement was made 
by Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, Honourable Joe Oliver, at the 
headquarters of Cameco Corporation, whose then-CEO, Mr. Gerald Grandey had 
been a key speaker and participant at the CanadaIndia Energy Forum", he said. 
"Both Canada and India will benefit greatly when the Nuclear Cooperation 
Agreement is finally in force, with greater assurance of energy security for 
India and jobs for Canadians, generated through Canadian technology" added Mr. 
Rahul Shastri, National Convenor of CIF. "The nuclear cooperation potential 
was a key reason behind CIF's recommendation of a rethinking of the bilateral 
trade target for Canada and India to a figure greater than $15 billion, as 
stated in its submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on 
International Trade in November 2012" he added. 
CanadaIndia Foundation (CIF) is a national, non-profit, non-partisan, 
non-governmental organization formed to foster support for stronger bi-lateral
