December 19, 2013 – The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is offering up to $75,000 in funding to help members of the public, Aboriginal groups and other interested stakeholders participate in the review of Bruce Power’s renewal applications for the Bruce Nuclear Generating Stations A and B power reactor operating licences.

Bruce Power has applied for a 5-year licence renewal for the continued operation of Stations A and B. The commission will be holding a public hearing to consider the licence renewal applications in September 2014, and the funding must be used to prepare for, and participate in, that event.

Funding will be considered “for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information to the commission”. A formal notice of hearing will soon be issued by the commission secretariat, confirming the date and location of the public hearing.

To apply for funding, the Participant Funding Application Form must be completed and returned to the CNSC (download below). Certain terms and conditions apply. The deadline to submit the form is January 31, 2014. Late or incomplete funding applications will not be considered.

A Funding Review Committee (independent of CNSC) will consider all applications for funding, and make recommendations on the allocation of funds.

Before submitting a funding application form, you are encouraged to review Bruce Power’s licence renewal applications and other relevant documentation related to these applications. These documents may be requested from the secretariat at interventions@cnsc-ccsn.gc.ca .
