CNSC Participant Funding Program Decision: Formalized CNSC Staff Meetings with Saugeen Ojibway Nation Under the Saugeen Ojibway Nation–CNSC Terms of Reference

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has offered funding through its Participant Funding Program to assist the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) to participate in formalized meetings and activities under the SON–CNSC Terms of Reference (TOR). 

The information gathered from these meetings and activities will be included in the relevant Commission member documents so that any valuable information gathered can be brought directly to the Commission.

Background

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 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:

  • Paul Scott, retired regional director, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, Vancouver office
  • Bruce Young, retired director, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
  • Steve Burgess, retired director, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency     

The FRC reviewed the PFP application received by the CNSC, requesting a total of $46,525.38.
