Position Papers, Intervention Submissions and other Documents in Support of Nuclear Science and Technology in Canada
Members of the CNS prepare position papers, intervention submissions for CNSC hearings and other documents in support of the nuclear science and technology in Canada.
These documents are prepared by volunteers on behalf of the CNS, as the CNS has no paid staff to perform these activities. The effort of the volunteer members is much needed and much appreciated.
If you are interested in (helping with) the preparation of a document for the CNS, you should contact the CNS Communications Director.
