Participant funding for Ontario Power Generation's licence amendment application for the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station

This participant funding opportunity is open from October 23 to November 24, 2023.

Participant funding notice

In spring 2024, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will conduct a hearing based on written submissions, to consider an application from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for the amendment of its power reactor operating licence for the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station. The proposed amendment would authorize OPG to commercially produce the cobalt-60 radionuclide. The facility is located in the Municipality of Clarington Ontario, and on the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabe people, and these lands are covered by the Williams Treaty between Canada and the Mississauga and Chippewa 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 other associated documents, and in participating in the Commission hearing process by providing topic-specific written interventions to the Commission for this hearing in writing.

Up to $30,000 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 the submission of a written intervention to the Commission.

To apply, please submit a participant funding application form. Certain terms and conditions apply. You can submit the form by:
