    Regulation for Development, Interference with Wetlands, and Alterations to Shorelines and Watercourses

    Before you begin any work in a shoreline area, you will need to check with your local conservation authority to see if a permit is required. If your watershed is not managed by a conservation authority, check with your local Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry office. Waterfront properties along the Rideau or Trent-Severn waterways fall under the jurisdiction of Parks Canada.

    Waterfront activities requiring a permit include:

    • Construction of any kind
    • Altering a structure
    • Removing or dumping any material
    • Altering a watercourse
    • Altering a Provincially Significant Wetland (or adjacent lands)

    For more detailed information, please read this brochure published by Conservation Ontario.

    Protecting Fish Habitat is an extension note which explains safe ways to work along your waterfront. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans provides information related to the Canada Fisheries Act and the protection of fish habitat.

    Your local conservation authority can be found on the Conservation Ontario website.

    Your local Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry office can be found on the MNRF website. The Ontario government has several pieces of legislation that regulate work around water. A summary is provided in this Fact Sheet.

    Parks Canada policies and work permits are available on their website.
