Participant Funding Program decision – Bruce Power’s licence amendment for the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station to allow the production of lutetium-177
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced on January 18, 2021, that it was offering a total of $50,000 through its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public and stakeholders in reviewing Bruce Power’s licence amendment for the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station to allow the production of lutetium-177.
The CNSC made PFP support available to:
- provide new, distinctive and valuable information to the CNSC through informed and topic-specific interventions
- assist interested parties in reviewing the licence application and in participating in the Commission hearing process for Bruce Power
A funding review committee (FRC), independent of the CNSC, was established to review the funding applications received by the CNSC’s PFP administrator and to make recommendations on allocating up to $50,000 to eligible applicants.
The FRC members were:
- Paul Scott, retired regional director, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, Vancouver office
- Steve Burgess, retired director, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
- Bruce Young, retired director, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
On February 26, 2021, the FRC met to review 3 PFP applications received by the CNSC, totalling $38,575.
