Once you have received a permit or approval, you have these responsibilities to fulfil:
Commencement of Activity
- It is common for the complete date to be three months from the issue of approval. Unless otherwise specified, the activity or construction must begin within one year of the permit issue date, or before the expiration of any authorized extension.
- If you are unable to begin work within one year after the issue date, you may request a one-year extension from the Ministry, stating the reasons you need an extension, and when you anticipate the commencement date to be.
Notification of work
All permits require you to notify the District Transportation Office before you begin any works. You must give the Ministry of Transportation two working days' notice when you will be carrying out any work within the right-of-way. Upon completion, you should notify the District Transportation Office so that a final inspection may be initiated, if applicable.
