Starting on April 1, 2024, NVCA will follow a new regulation under the Conservation Authorities Act to review permit applications.

Under the new regulation, the regulated area around wetlands will be 30 m, including provincially significant wetlands. This change will be reflected in NVCA’s regulated mapping shortly. In the interim, NVCA will follow the text in the regulation.
