Research and Support Program

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) funds an extramural research program to obtain knowledge and information needed to support its regulatory mission. The program provides the CNSC with access to independent advice, expertise, experience, information and other resources via contracts, grants and contributions placed in the private sector, and with other agencies and organizations in Canada and elsewhere. The program is compiled from project proposals submitted from across the CNSC.

Reports completed through the research program are not published as CNSC reports. Contractors' reports are only available in the language in which they are submitted to the CNSC.
