What Happens When You Call?
Calling ahead of time will save everyone time and money. You can view maps at the RVCA’s LandOwner Resource Centre that show where your property is located relative to regulated areas. If necessary, Conservation Authority staff may visit your property. Staff will also advise you about the approval process for your specific project.
What Happens If You Don't Call?
If you don't call the RVCA, you may do something that is not permitted. If your project is illegal, you may have to remove the work and you may be fined.
We can answer any other questions you have about projects on land regulated by Ontario Regulation 97/04. Just give us a call.

Who Else Should You Call?
You should also call the Building Department of your local municipality. It will have other guidelines that apply to your project.
