  Application Forms

The Provincial Public Permit Highway Application (PDF) allows you to specify the type of permit you are applying for, which could be any of approximately 20 different permits listed in the government development approvals system. It asks for:

  • a sketch or description of your proposal
  • the location on the right-of-way where you plan your use or occupation of the highway
  • other agencies you have contacted
  • the names of the official contacts on the permit

Interactive Help is available to help you fill out the permit application form.

A Lane Closure Permit is often necessary in order to carry out your activity on the highway. Ask development approvals staff if you need to fill out this form. Work Notification/Lane Closure Request and Approval Form

If you have specific questions or concerns about your project, talk to approvals staff at your District Transportation Office.
