Application Forms, Fee Schedules and Guidelines

Many types of environmental projects and undertakings fall under the various Acts, Regulations and Policy Directives that are administered by the Water Resources Management Division.

These activities require the prior approval of the Division before work can proceed. To apply for approval of an activity the Division has a number of different application forms which are listed below. In addition to the application forms, where applicable, there are also fee schedules and guidelines to be used for the different types of projects.

Contact information for the various approvals is outlined in Applications for Permits and Licences Brochure PDF (3.3 MB).

Applying for Approval / Permit / Authorization

In order to review an application and issue a Approval / Permit / Authorization we must have the following items:

  • The appropriate completed application form(s) and schedule(s) for the proposed work and any other required drawings, photos or exhibits.
  • A completed Application Fee Schedule with the fees (or proof of payment) as described in the Application Fee Schedule.
  • These must be e-mailed or delivered to the address listed on the application form.
  • Indigenous Consultation - If the application is for work in Labrador the proponent must check with the Intergovernmental and Indigenous Affairs Secretariat to determine if Indigenous Consultation is required. If consultation is required, it is the responsibility of the proponent to undertake the consultation. Applications will be considered incomplete without the Indigenous Consultation.
