Participant Funding Program decision – CNSC staff meetings with Passamaquoddy Recognition Group to discuss CNSC-regulated facilities and activities in Peskotomuhkati Nation territory
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has offered funding through its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to Passamaquoddy Recognition Group (PRG) to support its participation in meetings with CNSC staff to discuss CNSC-regulated facilities and activities within Peskotomuhkati Nation territory.
The information gathered from these meetings and other activities will be included in relevant Commission member documents so that any valuable information can be brought directly to the Commission.
The CNSC made participant funding 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:
- Steve Burgess, retired director with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
- James Taylor, retired senior advisor with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada
On February 16, 2023, the FRC reviewed the PFP application received, requesting a total of $80,000.
Eligibility and funding criteria
For more information on participant funding and how it works, including details on eligibility and funding criteria, please read the PFP guide.
