The participant funding offering for the Regulatory Oversight Report for Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Sites: 2018 is open from February 25, 2019 to May 17, 2019.

Participant funding notice

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public, and stakeholders in reviewing CNSC staff’s Regulatory Oversight Report for Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Sites: 2018 and submitting comments, in writing, to the Commission. In addition, the CNSC will allow Indigenous intervenors the opportunity to make oral presentations in the spirit of reconciliation and in recognition of the Indigenous oral tradition of sharing knowledge.

The CNSC will hold a public meeting on November 6-7, 2019 during which CNSC staff will present the report to the Commission. The report will provide CNSC staff’s assessment of the safety performance of CNSC-licensed Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) sites. The report will also include information on future developments at these CNL sites and on areas of particular regulatory focus for the CNSC.

Up to $50,000 in participant funding will be dispersed among all eligible applicants for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information through informed and topic-specific interventions to the Commission.

To apply for participant funding, interested parties must complete and submit a participant funding application form. Certain terms and conditions apply. An application form can be submitted by:

The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect health, safety, security and the environment; to implement Canada’s international commitments on the peaceful use of nuclear energy; and to disseminate objective scientific, technical and regulatory information to the public.
