Health Authorities

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure staff draw on the expertise of the regional Health Authorities when evaluating the property's capacity for providing safe drinking water and adequate sewerage.

The Health Authority has approving authority for water systems and for sewer systems; in the case of on-site sewage disposal, it may make recommendations, but the Approving Officer makes the decision to accept or reject the proposal.
