The Canadian Environmental Law Association and the Coalition for Responsible Energy Development in New Brunswick invite you to an evening workshop on February 7 where the public will have an opportunity to learn about the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s intervention process.

NB Power is asking for a 25-year licence renewal for its Point Lepreau nuclear generating station. Learn more about your environmental rights and how citizens and groups can submit a written or oral ‘intervention’ at the hearing. Intervening before the Commission is the public’s way of participating in decisions relating to the licensing of Canada’s nuclear facilities

This workshop will prepare members of the public to provide written and oral comments to the Commission for the licence renewal hearing of NB Power’s Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station.

Comments to the Commission are due March 28, 2022. Part 2 of the hearing is scheduled to occur virtually May 11 – 12, 2022 via Zoom. (Part 1, on Jan 26 th involves only presentations by NB Power and CNSC staff.)
