Participant Funding for the Regulatory Oversight Report for Operating Uranium Mines and Mills in Canada: 2019

This participant funding opportunity is open from July 8 to August 7, 2020.

Participant funding notice

The CNSC is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public and stakeholders in reviewing CNSC staff’s Regulatory Oversight Report for Operating Uranium Mines and Mills in Canada: 2019 (the report) and submitting comments in writing to the Commission.

Indigenous intervenors may also make oral presentations. This additional opportunity is being made available to Indigenous intervenors in the spirit of reconciliation and in recognition of the Indigenous oral tradition of sharing knowledge. Oral presentations will be made remotely due to potential travel restrictions or limitations relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On December 8, 9 and 10, 2020, the CNSC will hold a public meeting where CNSC staff will present the report to the Commission; it will consist of a presentation and a plain-language narrative summary. The report itself will provide an overview of CNSC regulatory efforts in 2019 with respect to operating uranium mines and mills in Canada.

Up to $35,000 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. PFP applications must clearly demonstrate how the proposed submission will provide the Commission with information directly relating to the report and regulatory performance of operating uranium mines and mills during 2019. Funding for travel to the Commission meeting is not within the scope of this funding opportunity.
