CNSC Participant Funding Program decision – CNSC staff meetings with Anishinabek Nation

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has offered funding through its Participant Funding Program to assist Anishinabek Nation in participating in meetings with CNSC staff in 2022.

The information gathered from these meetings will be included in relevant Commission member documents so that any valuable information gathered can be brought directly to the Commission.


The CNSC made PFP support available to:

  • enhance Indigenous and stakeholder participation in the CNSC’s environmental assessment and licensing processes
  • help Indigenous Nations and communities, members of the public and stakeholders bring valuable information to the Commission

A funding review committee (FRC), independent of the CNSC, 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.

The FRC members were:

  • Bruce Young, retired director of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
  • James Taylor, retired senior advisor of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada

The FRC reviewed the PFP application requesting a total of $30,000.

Eligibility and funding criteria

For more information about participant funding and how it works, including details on eligibility and funding criteria, please read the PFP guide.
