CNSC Participant Funding Program Decision (PDF 158 KB)

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) offered funding under its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to facilitate a meeting on October 11, 2018 between the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) and CNSC staff. The purpose of the meeting was for the AOO to participate in the CNSC’s Independent Environmental Monitoring Program related to Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ (CNL) Nuclear Power Demonstration (NPD) Closure project.

The information gathered from the meeting will be included in a relevant Commission member document and presented directly to the Commission.


The CNSC made PFP support available to:

  • enhance Indigenous and stakeholder participation in the CNSC’s environmental assessment and licensing processes
  • help stakeholders bring valuable information to the Commission

A Funding Review Committee (FRC), independent from 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 had one member: Mr. Steve Burgess, retired Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency Director.

The CNSC received one PFP application requesting $2,297.81, and this was reviewed by the FRC.

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 (PDF 616 KB).
