The CNSC made participant funding available:
- for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information to the Commission through informed and topic-specific interventions
- to assist interested parties in reviewing Bruce Power’s mid-term update on licensed activities and in submitting comments in writing to the Commission

On May 29, 2023, the FRC met to review the 5 PFP applications received, requesting a total of $136,116.40.
