Participant funding for Cameco Corporation’s Blind River Refinery licence renewal application

This participant funding offering is open from March 8 to May 7, 2021.

Participant funding notice

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold a one-part public hearing on November 24–25, 2021, to consider an application to renew the Class IB operating licence for the Cameco Corporation (Cameco) Blind River Refinery. This facility is located in Blind River, Ontario.

The CNSC is offering participant funding to assist Indigenous peoples, members of the public, and stakeholders in reviewing Cameco’s licence renewal application and associated documents, and in participating in the Commission hearing process by providing topic-specific interventions to the Commission.

Up to $75,000 in participant funding will be disbursed among all eligible applicants for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information through informed and topic-specific interventions to the Commission. Funding will be awarded for the review of documentation, including CNSC staff’s documents and Cameco’s Commission member documents, and for participation in the public Commission hearing. Funding for travel to the Commission hearing is within the scope of this opportunity. However, due to potential travel restrictions or limitations relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission will announce at a later date whether there will be in-person oral presentations at the Commission hearing.

To apply, please submit a participant funding application form. Certain terms and conditions apply. You can submit the form by:

  • Email: mailto:cnsc.pfp.ccsn@canada.ca
