OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada and Kazakhstan have reached a nuclear cooperation agreement to open up Kazakhstan's civil nuclear market to Canadian uranium and technology suppliers, Trade Minister Stockwell Day said on Thursday.

In a statement, Day said one of the Canadian companies that will benefit from the agreement is Cameco Corp, one of the world's largest uranium producers.
