Participant funding notice

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering participant funding to assist members of the public, Indigenous groups and other stakeholders in reviewing its Regulatory Oversight Report for Canadian Nuclear Power Plants: 2016 (2016 NPP Report) and in submitting comments to the Commission. This report provides CNSC staff’s assessment of the Canadian nuclear power industry’s safety performance during 2016 and details the progress of regulatory issues and initiatives up to April 30, 2017.

The report assesses how well plant operators are meeting regulatory requirements and program expectations in areas such as human performance, radiation and environmental protection, and emergency management and fire protection.

The CNSC will hold a public meeting on August 16 or 17, 2017 in Ottawa, ON, where CNSC staff will present the 2016 NPP Report to the Commission.

Participant funding up to $35,000 is being offered for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information, through informed and topic-specific submissions to the Commission.
