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 22, 2018 between Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Region 7 and CNSC staff. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the effects of thermal discharges from the Bruce Power site on lake and round whitefish.

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 $5,976.44, and this was reviewed by the FRC.

Eligibility and funding criteria
