Participant funding for the Regulatory Oversight Report on the Use of Nuclear Substances in Canada: 2020

This participant funding opportunity is open from July 5 to August 6, 2021.

Participant funding notice

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public and stakeholders in reviewing CNSC staff’s Regulatory Oversight Report on the Use of Nuclear Substances in Canada: 2020 and submitting comments in writing to the Commission. In addition, in the spirit of reconciliation and in recognition of the Indigenous oral tradition of sharing knowledge, the CNSC is offering Indigenous intervenors the opportunity to make oral presentations. These presentations will be made remotely due to potential COVID-19 travel restrictions or limitations.

On November 24 and 25, 2021, the CNSC will hold a public meeting at which CNSC staff will present the report to the Commission. The report provides an overview of CNSC staff’s assessment of the safety performance of licensees in the medical, industrial, academic and research, and commercial sectors that used nuclear substances in Canada in 2020.

Up to $10,000 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. Participant funding applications must clearly demonstrate how the proposed intervention will provide the Commission with information directly related to the report and the safety performance of nuclear substances licensees in 2020.

To apply, please submit a participant funding application form. Certain terms and conditions apply. An application form can be submitted by:
