Ontario Power Generation (OPG) has applied to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission – Commission canadienne de sûreté nucléaire (CNSC) for renewal of the Site Preparation License to support the Darlington New Nuclear Project. In 2012, following the acceptance of a thorough Environmental Assessment, which included extensive public involvement, the CNSC granted OPG a license to allow site preparation activities to support future nuclear generation.

The application will be considered by the CNSC at a public hearing currently scheduled to take place on June 9 and 10, 2021.
The deadline for filing an intervention for the public Commission hearing is May 3, 2021.

Darlington is the only site in Canada currently licensed for new nuclear. Additional generation at Darlington would allow low-carbon, reliable nuclear energy to continue being an important part of Ontario’s energy mix. Renewal of the license would be one step in a series of licenses and regulatory approvals required prior to the construction and operation of a new reactor.
