File Number

Each application received by the Ministry of Transportation is given a number. Please use this number for all your communications with the Ministry when referring to your application.

Tracking Permit Applications

To track the progress of your application, contact your District Transportation Office, using the file number you were given by the Ministry as a reference. Ministry of Transportation staff keep track of the progress of application with the Development Approvals System (DAS). At a future date, we hope to offer our applicants similar status tracking ability on-line.

Ministry staff will review your proposal, including a site visit and consultation if necessary. Following their evaluation, you will be contacted with a decision, or a request for more information.

If your proposal is successful, you will receive a permit, or letter of approval.

You can find out more about the review and decision process in Evaluation and Ministry Decision.
