Participant Funding Program decision – CNSC staff meetings with Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation under the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation–CNSC Terms of Reference from April 2022 to March 2023
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has offered funding through its Participant Funding Program to assist Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation (AOPFN) in participating in meetings and activities under the AOPFN–CNSC Terms of Reference from April 2022 to March 2023.
The information gathered from these meetings and activities will be included in relevant Commission member documents so that any valuable information gathered can be brought 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 Indigenous Nations and communities, members of 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 to the applicant.
The FRC members were:
- Steve Burgess, retired director of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
- Yves Leboeuf, retired vice-president of operations of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
The FRC reviewed the PFP application requesting a total of $16,386.
