Participant Funding Program decision – Meeting with Curve Lake First Nation to discuss the applicability of the environmental assessment to Ontario Power Generation’s selected reactor technology for the Darlington New Nuclear Project
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has offered funding through its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to support Curve Lake First Nation (CLFN) in meeting with CNSC staff to discuss the applicability of the environmental assessment to Ontario Power Generation’s selected reactor technology for the Darlington New Nuclear Project, and to support CLFN’s participation in the public Commission hearing.
The CNSC made PFP support available to:
- enhance Indigenous and public participation in the CNSC’s environmental assessment and licensing processes
- help Indigenous Nations and communities, the public and interested parties bring valuable information to the Commission
A funding review committee (FRC), 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.
On December 4, 2023, the FRC met to review the PFP application received, requesting a total of $8,030.
