Participant funding notice

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold a 2-part public hearing on March 26, 2025, and June 24–26, 2025, to consider an application from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) to renew its power reactor operating licence for Darlington Nuclear Generating Station. The facility is located in the municipality of Clarington and the traditional territory of the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, and the territory covered by the Williams Treaties First Nations.

The CNSC is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous Nations and communities, members of the public, and interested parties in reviewing OPG’s application and associated documents, and in participating in the Commission hearing process by providing topic-specific interventions to the Commission.

Up to $100,000 in participant funding will be disbursed among all eligible applicants for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information through informed and topic-specific interventions to the Commission. Funding will be awarded for the review of documentation, including CNSC staff’s documents and OPG’s Commission member documents, and for participation in the public Commission hearing.
