Participant funding for the Cameco Fuel Manufacturing Inc. licence renewal

This participant funding offering is open from April 12 to May 14, 2021.

Participant funding notice

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will conduct a hearing based on written submissions to consider a one-year licence renewal application from Cameco Corporation (Cameco) for Cameco Fuel Manufacturing Inc. (CFM). In its licence renewal application, Cameco is seeking approval to continue the same activities the current licence authorizes, with no changes to the existing terms and conditions. The facility is located in Port Hope, Ontario.

Separate from this one-year licence renewal application, Cameco has also indicated its intent to seek approval of a longer-term licence renewal in a future renewal application. If a one-year licence renewal is granted for the CFM, the Commission will also hold a public hearing, based on oral and written submissions, to consider the longer-term renewal.

The CNSC is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public, and stakeholders in reviewing Cameco’s application and associated documents, and in participating in the Commission hearing process by providing topic-specific written interventions to the Commission.

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 Cameco’s Commission member documents, and for the submission of a written intervention to the Commission. In order to be eligible for funding, applications must focus exclusively on Cameco’s proposed one-year licence renewal.

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

  • Email:

Deadline for submitting a participant funding application: May 14, 2021.

A funding review committee that is independent of the CNSC will consider all applications for funding and make recommendations on the allocation of funds.
