In the past, Conservation Authorities served as the first point of contact and the local service provider for review of Section 35 of the previous version of the Fisheries Act, (having entered into agreements with Fisheries and Oceans Canada) to facilitate this process.

Changes to the Fisheries Act, however, effective November 25, 2013, have resulted in the cancellation of these agreements.

The SVCA will continue to undertake advisory reviews involving fisheries and aquatic resources under the Planning Act and/or as a watershed management agency under the Conservation Authorities Act.

Note: It is now the responsibility of the proponent to contact the Department of Fisheries and Oceans at 1-855-852-8320 for more information regarding the applicability of this legislation to a proposal.
