Participant funding notice: Gentilly-2 nuclear facility licence application

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering participant funding to assist members of the public, Aboriginal groups and other stakeholders in reviewing Hydro-Québec’s licence application and associated documents, and submitting comments to the Commission.

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold a public hearing on May 4 or 5, 2016 in Ottawa, ON, to consider an application from Hydro-Québec for a 10-year licence to continue activities related to the preparation for decommissioning of the Gentilly-2 nuclear facility, which is currently in a safe storage state. Gentilly-2 is located near Bécancour, QC.

Participant funding up to $25,000 is being offered for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information, through informed and topic-specific written interventions.

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

The deadline to submit a participant funding application is Friday, January 29, 2016. Please note that late or incomplete funding applications will not be considered.

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 health, safety, security and the environment, and 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.

For information on how to participate, visit the Participate in a public Commission hearing and Participant Funding Program sections of the CNSC website.
