Application process

Under the Parks and Land Certainty Act, when you apply for a permit we can charge you if you:

  • provide false information; or
  • do not provide a fact relevant to your application.

Under section 44 of the Parks and Land Certainty Act, you may have to provide security. This is to ensure you complete specific terms or conditions of your park permit.

We may consult with First Nation or Inuvialuit governments if their traditional territory may be affected by the activities proposed in your application.
