CNSC Regulatory Oversight Report on Uranium Mines, Mills, Historic and Decommissioned Sites in Canada: 2017
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced on July 3, 2018 that it was offering a total of $35,000 under its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public and stakeholders in reviewing CNSC staff’s Regulatory Oversight Report on Uranium Mines, Mills, Historic and Decommissioned Sites in Canada: 2017 (2017 UMM Report), and submitting written comments to the Commission. Indigenous communities were also invited to participate at the Commission meeting. The deadline for submitting participant funding applications to the CNSC was August 31, 2018.
Participant funding was made available by the CNSC:
- for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information to the CNSC through informed and topic-specific interventions
- to assist interested parties in reviewing CNSC staff’s 2017 UMM Report and submitting written comments to the Commission
A Funding Review Committee (FRC), independent from the CNSC, was established to review the funding applications received by the CNSC’s PFP administrator and to make recommendations on the allocation of up to $35,000 for eligible applicants. The FRC was provided the flexibility to recommend funding beyond $35,000 based on the value-added of the funding applications received.
The FRC members were:
- Steve Burgess, retired Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency Director
- Bruce Young, retired Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency Director
On September 25, 2018 the FRC met to review eight PFP applications received by the CNSC, requesting a total of $172,057.25.
