Participant funding notice

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold a hearing in writing to consider an application from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) to amend its power reactor operating licence for the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station (NGS) to carry out activities related to the production and possession of molybdenum-99 radioisotope. The Darlington NGS is located in the municipality of Clarington, on the north shore of Lake Ontario.

The CNSC is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public, and stakeholders in reviewing OPG’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 OPG’s Commission member documents, and for the submission of a written intervention to the Commission.
