CNSC Participant Funding Program decision: CNSC staff meeting with Métis Nation of Ontario Region 7 regarding participation in the CNSC’s Independent Environmental Monitoring Program for the Bruce Power site

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) offered funding under its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to facilitate a meeting on September 10, 2019, between the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Region 7 and CNSC staff. The purpose of the meeting was to enable the participation of MNO Region 7 in the CNSC’s Independent Environmental Monitoring Program for the Bruce Power site.

The information gathered from the meeting will be included in the relevant Commission member document and presented directly to the Commission.

Background

Participant funding was made available by the CNSC to:

  • enhance Indigenous and stakeholder participation in the CNSC’s environmental assessment and licensing processes
  • help Indigenous peoples, the public and stakeholders bring valuable information to the Commission

A funding review committee (FRC), independent from the CNSC, was established to review the funding application received by the CNSC’s PFP administrator and to make recommendations on the allocation of funding to the applicant.

The FRC had one member, Paul Scott, retired regional director of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s Vancouver office.

The CNSC received one PFP application, requesting $390.77, which was reviewed by the FRC.

Eligibility and funding criteria

For more information on participant funding and how it works, including details on eligibility and funding criteria, please read the PFP guide.
