The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold a public hearing on March 9 or 10 2022, to consider an application from Canadian Light Source Inc. (CLSI) renew its particle accelerator operating licence. The licensed facility is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The CNSC is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public, and stakeholders in reviewing CLSI’s licence renewal application and associated documents, and in participating in the Commission hearing process by providing topic-specific interventions to the Commission.
Up to $35,000 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. Funding will be awarded for the review of documentation, including CNSC staff and CLSI Commission member documents, and for participation in the public Commission hearing. Funding for travel to the Commission hearing is within the scope of this opportunity. However, due to potential travel restrictions or limitations relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission will announce at a later date whether there will be in-person oral presentations at the Commission hearing.
