Participant Funding Program decision - Cameco Fuel Manufacturing's 1-year licence renewal application

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced on April 12, 2021, that it was offering a total of $30,000 under its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public, and stakeholders to participate in the Commission hearing process for Cameco Fuel Manufacturing’s (CFM’s) 1-year licence renewal application.


The CNSC made PFP funding available:

  • for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information to the CNSC through informed and topic-specific interventions
  • to assist interested parties in participating in the licence application review and the Commission’s public hearing process for CFM’s licence application

A funding review committee (FRC), independent from the CNSC, was established to review the funding application received by the CNSC’s PFP administrator, and to make recommendations on the allocation of up to $30,000 for the applicant.

The FRC members were:

  • Mr. Paul Scott, retired regional director of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s Vancouver office
  • Mr. Bruce Young, retired director of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
  • Mr. Steve Burgess, retired director of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency

The FRC met to review 1 PFP application received by the CNSC, requesting a total of $8,800.
