Welcome to the NPCA's Get Involved portal!

The NPCA is undertaking a review and update of its Planning and Permitting Policy document, which is used to guide NPCA staff in making decisions on NPCA Permits and providing comments on various Planning applications. During this process, the NPCA will also develop a Procedural Manual to assist staff in implementing the Policy document.

An important part of this process is ensuring that the watershed community is informed and given the opportunity to share their feedback related to the document. We invite you to stay informed throughout this process, which is expected to be completed in December 2022.
