News Release

April 7, 2016 – Ottawa, ON

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold a public meeting on November 9 or 10, 2016 in Port Hope, ON, during which CNSC staff will present the Regulatory Oversight Report for Nuclear Processing, Small Research Reactor and Class IB Accelerator Facilities: 2015.

The report provides CNSC staff’s assessment of Canadian uranium processing, nuclear substance processing, small research reactor facilities and Class IB particle accelerator facilities safety performance during the 2015 calendar year and details the progress of regulatory issues and initiatives up to March 31, 2016. The Commission will be accepting written submissions on the report from the public.

Through its Participant Funding Program, the CNSC is offering funding to assist members of the public, Aboriginal groups and other stakeholders in reviewing the report. Participant funding up to $25,000 is being offered for the provision of new, distinctive and valuable information, through informed and topic-specific written submissions to the Commission.

The deadline for submitting a completed participant funding application form to the CNSC is June 30, 2016.

The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect health, safety, security and the environment; to implement Canada’s international commitments on the peaceful use of nuclear energy; and to disseminate objective scientific, technical and regulatory information to the public.
