Participant funding notice: Nordion (Canada) Inc. licence renewal application

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering participant funding to assist members of the public, Aboriginal groups and other stakeholders in reviewing Nordion’s licence renewal application. Nordion is located in Kanata (Ottawa), Ontario.

Nordion, which processes radioisotopes for medical and industrial applications, has requested renewal of its licence in order to continue operations.

Participant funding up to $25,000 is being offered for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information, through informed and topic-specific interventions. This funding must be used to prepare for, and participate in, the Commission’s public hearing scheduled for August 19, 2015, in Ottawa, Ontario.

The deadline for submitting a completed participant funding application form to the CNSC is May 19, 2015. Interested applicants are encouraged to submit their funding applications as early as possible to ensure that they receive a decision on their application well in advance of the hearing date. Please note that late or incomplete funding applications will not be considered.

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

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 the health, safety and security of Canadians 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.
