Participant Funding Program decision - CNSC staff meeting with Curve Lake First Nation to discuss the draft report produced by the KI Pill Working Group
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) offered funding under its Participant Funding Program (PFP) to support CNSC meetings on matters of regulatory interest to facilitate a meeting between Curve Lake First Nation and CNSC staff. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the Potassium Iodide (KI) Pill Working Group’s draft report on the Emergency Distribution of Potassium Iodide Within the Ingestion Planning Zone (IPZ) of Pickering Nuclear Generating Station.
The CNSC made PFP support available to:
- enhance Indigenous and stakeholder participation in the CNSC’s environmental assessment and licensing processes
- help Indigenous peoples, the public, and stakeholders bring valuable information to the Commission
A funding review committee (FRC), independent of 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 for eligible applicants.
The FRC member was:
- Steve Burgess, retired director of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
The FRC reviewed the PFP application received by the CNSC, requesting a total of $4,400.
