Participant funding notice: Gunnar Remediation Project phase 2 licence hold point

May 5, 2015

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering participant funding to assist members of the public, Aboriginal groups and other stakeholders in reviewing SRC’s detailed remediation option plans and submitting comments to the Commission.

Following a public hearing in November 2014, the Commission granted the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) a 10-year licence. The Commission must approve SRC’s detailed remediation option plans prior to releasing the hold point, allowing SRC to carry out remedial activities as part of phase 2 of the remediation project.

Participant funding up to $20,000 is being offered for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information, through informed and topic-specific written interventions.

To apply for participant funding, interested parties must fill out and return the Participant Funding Application Form. Certain terms and conditions apply.

The deadline to submit a participant funding application is Tuesday June 19, 2015. Please note that late or incomplete funding applications will not be considered.

A funding review committee, independent of the CNSC, will consider all applications for funding and make recommendations on the allocation of funds.

The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect health, safety, security and the environment, and 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.

For information on how to participate, visit the Participate in a Public Commission Hearing and Participant Funding Program sections of the CNSC website. You may also view the CNSC’s Participant Funding Program video.
