Find out more about how to participate in a public Commission hearing.

Please note that submitting a request to intervene does not automatically grant intervenor status. Pursuant to rule 19 of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission Rules of Procedure, the request to intervene needs to be accepted by the Commission.

Also pursuant to rule 19, if the Commission does accept the intervention, it will do so "in the manner and to the extent that the Commission considers will enable it to determine the matter before it in a fair, informal and expeditious manner". For example, an intervenor may request to present information orally, but the Commission will determine the form of intervention – in writing only, or both in writing and orally – that would best assist in its consideration of the matter, and in ensuring an efficient and fair process. For more information, see the Participate in a public Commission hearing Web page.

The Secretariat will confirm if the Commission has accepted an intervention and the accepted format.
