    Building a boardwalkBefore you begin any work in a wetland 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 office.

    • 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.

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

    Your local Ministry of Natural Resources office can be found on the OMNR website.
