Participant funding being offered for Gunnar Remediation Project

December 16, 2013

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering participant funding to assist members of the public, Aboriginal groups, and other stakeholders to take part in the Commission hearing for the Saskatchewan Research Council’s licence application for the Gunnar Remediation Project. The Saskatchewan Research Council has requested a 10-year licence term.

Participant funding up to $25,000 is being offered for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information to the Commission, through informed and topic-specific interventions. This funding must be used to prepare for and participate in the Commission’s public hearing process, tentatively scheduled for May 2014. A formal notice of hearing will soon be issued by the Commission Secretariat, confirming the date and location of the public hearing.

The deadline for submitting participant funding applications to the CNSC is January 31, 2014.
