Participant Funding Program

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) established the Participant Funding Program (PFP) in 2011 to:

  1. enhance individual, not-for-profit organization and Indigenous group participation in the CNSC’s environmental assessment (EA) and licensing processes for major nuclear facilities (e.g., uranium mines, nuclear power plants, nuclear substance processing, or nuclear waste facilities)
  2. assist individuals, not-for-profit organizations and Indigenous groups to bring value-added information to the Commission through informed and topic-specific interventions related to EAs and licensing (i.e., new, distinctive and relevant information that contributes to a better understanding of the anticipated effects of a project)
