Archaeological Interests

It is important to identify areas with proven or potential heritage significance early on in the subdivision process.  This will allow for the least restrictive on-site development and the most cost-effective management of archaeological sites.  If there are known values on site, or an indication of high archaeological values present, a report from a certified archaeologist may be required. If there are no known values but an item or feature of archaeological interest becomes evident, it is vital to stop all work and hire an archeological professional to assess the site further. All applicants must comply with the Heritage Conservation Act.
