If the scope of your project does not fall within the standards and codes of practice, submit a request for review.

To request a project review, download the review request form and submit it to your region's Fish and Fish Habitat Protection Program office.

Send completed form to your regional office.

We’ll review your project plans to identify the potential risks of the project to the conservation and protection of fish and fish habitat. During our review, we’ll determine:

  • whether your project will impact an aquatic species at risk
  • if your activity can also result in the death of fish and the harmful alternation, disruption or destruction of fish habitat
  • if your project will need authorization under the Fisheries Act
