Permits & Approvals
Watershed Planning & Development

Permits and approvals are an important part of watershed management. The series of checks and balances enables the NBMCA to proactively ensure the health of the watershed.

A permit may be required if you are planning to work or build, on or near, a waterbody. 

Similarly, due to the serious watershed repercussions of faulty septic systems, the Ontario Building Code designates the NBMCA to administer the sewage system permit process in the Districts of Nipissing and Parry Sound. 

Not sure if you need a permit or approval to proceed? Please contact the NBMCA. Staff will be happy to assist you through the permit and approval process.
