The Ottawa Business Journal reports that ...

Ontario Power Generation has taken the first step toward construction of a new nuclear generating station at Darlington, east of Toronto.
... by submitting an application to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). The next step is for the CNSC to complete an environmental review.

OPG's current energy portfolio is 41% nuclear and 30% hydro so that a whopping 71% of its electricity production is emission-free. The province as a whole is over 50% nuclear and 22% hydro.
