Number: PL 3.03.04
Date issued: September 27, 2013
1.0 Goals and objectives
To achieve effective stewardship of public land and to protect Crown interests from activities occurring on adjacent, privately owned shore lands through the issuance of work permits.
- To describe activities that require a work permit (section 3.1) and describe exempted activities (section 3.1.1)
- To treat applicants fairly by:
- describing eligible work permit applicants;
- reviewing and responding to applications in a reasonable period of time;
- having regard for the property rights of land owners (e.g. the right of a riparian property owner to enjoy riparian rights, including the protection of their riparian property from being eroded or invaded by water), subject to applicable regulations and legislation;
- applying conditions to work permits that are reasonable and are not unduly onerous or unnecessary, having regard to the nature and location of the proposed work;
- advising applicants of their right to a hearing if they consider any condition in the work permit as unduly onerous or unnecessary; and
- advising applicants of their right to a hearing, before an officer refuses to issue a work permit or cancels a work permit.
- To ensure that the interests of neighbouring property owners and stakeholders are considered when reviewing applications that may have an adverse impact on those interests.
- To ensure that work permit applications are reviewed in accordance with O. Reg. 161/17, Occupation of Public Lands under Section 21.1 of the Act and PL 4.02.01, Application Review and Land Disposition Process to determine if occupational authority is required, and when occupational authority is required, that the occupation of public land is authorised by appropriate means (e.g., through Crown lease, Crown easement, licence of occupation, land use permit). A work permit authorizes an activity and is not a form of occupational authority. Where occupational authority has been granted that also authorizes the activity, a work permit is not required.
- To ensure that the Crown’s duty to consult, and if appropriate accommodate, First Nation and Métis communities is met where issuance of a work permit has the potential to adversely affect existing or credibly asserted, established or Aboriginal or treaty rights protected under Section 35 of Canada’s Constitution Act, 1982.
- To apply special criteria to the review of work permit applications for activities that may significantly affect shore processes.
- To satisfy the requirements of the Class Environmental Assessment for MNRF Resource Stewardship and Facility Development Projects when the issuance of a work permit disposes of rights to Crown resources.
- To ensure any referral arrangements between MNRF and Fisheries and Oceans Canada are followed for projects in and around water, where there may be impacts to fish and fish habitat.
- To ensure consideration of MNRF's obligations under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
- To provide the criteria under which work permit applications may be refused pursuant to subparagraph 2(1)(b)(iv) of O. Reg. 975.
- To direct officers to procedure PL 3.03.04, Issuing Work Permits – Section 14 Public Lands Act when implementing this policy.
2.0 Public lands officers
2.1 Appointment of officers
For the purpose of work permit administration, officers are appointed under subsection 5 (1) of the Public Lands Act (PLA). Authority to appoint officers is delegated to District Managers, consistent with Procedure PL 9.02.01 Appointment of Public Lands Officers.
2.2 Powers and duties of officers
Under the PLA and O. Reg. 975, officers have the:
- obligation to issue a work permit to an applicant unless the grounds specified in subsections 2(1) and 2(1.1), O. Reg. 975 apply;
- obligation to give the applicant for or holder of a work permit notice in writing of the officer’s intent to refuse to issue or to cancel a work permit before doing so (subsection 4(2), O. Reg. 975);
- obligation to notify the applicant for or holder of a work permit after a hearing of the officer’s decision and the reasons therefore and to advise that the applicant or permittee may, within 15 days of the date of mailing of the notification, request the Regional Director to reconsider the decision of the officer by filing written submissions with respect thereto (subsection 4(5) and 4(6), O. Reg. 975);
- authority to order an activity described in subsection 2(1) of O. Reg. 239/13, to cease until a work permit is obtained (subsection 14(5) PLA), consistent with Policy PL 9.03.01 Stop Work Orders;
- authority to cancel a work permit, in the situations specified in subsection 4(1), O. Reg. 975;
- authority to cancel a work permit without affording the holder thereof an opportunity to be heard, if continuation of the work under the permit is in the officer’s opinion, an immediate threat to the public interest and the officer gives written notice with reasons, to the holder (subsection 4(9), O. Reg. 975);
- obligation to refer the matter to the Regional Director for review immediately after cancelling a work permit, in accordance with subsection 4(9) and 4(10), O. Reg. 975; and
- authority to enter and inspect any private land for the purposes of the PLA, at reasonable times and upon producing proper identification (subsection 5(2), PLA), as further detailed in Policy PL 9.02.02 Entry Onto Private Land.
3.0 Directions and strategies
3.1 Activities subject to a work permit
The following activities are subject to work permit requirements outlined in subsection 2(1), paragraphs 1 to 6 of O. Reg. 239/13 Activities on Public Lands and Shore Lands – Work Permits and Exemptions:
- construct or place a building on public land;
- construct a trail, water crossing or road on public land;
- dredge shore lands;
- fill shore lands;
- remove invasive aquatic vegetation or native aquatic vegetation by mechanical means or by hand from shore lands;
- construct or place a structure or combination of structures that is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands.
3.1.1 Exceptions to the work permit requirements
The following is the list of exceptions to activities listed in Section 3.1 of this policy, as provided for in O. Reg. 239/13:
- "building" construction does not include floating structures, docks, boathouses, tents or ice huts unless the supporting structure or structures that are in physical contact with more than 15 square metres in total of shore lands, that is further explained in section 3.5. Construction does not include maintenance that does not increase or change the footprint of the existing building, (e.g. roofing repairs/replacement);
- "trail, water crossing and road" construction does not include those that have been authorized under a forest management plan under the Crown Forest Sustainability Act, 1994 (CFSA) or constructed as part of a forest operation to which the CFSA applies;
- "trail" construction does not include trails used for mineral exploration or extraction (the construction of associated water crossings is however subject to work permit requirements);
- "dredge" does not include removal or displacement of material for the purpose of installing service cables, heat loops, or water intakes for private residences;
- any "activity" that is done under the terms and conditions of a form of land use occupational authority granted under the PLA, is exempt from work permit requirements as per paragraph (a) of section 3. O. Reg. 239/13. For example, a work permit is not required where a Crown lease or licence of occupation has been issued and contains conditions and approval for the construction of a building or buildings. Activities subject to the work permit requirements that are not authorized by a form of land use occupational authority still require a work permit (e.g. new dredging in a water lot authorized under a Crown lease for marina purposes);
- minor maintenance activities carried out on a trail, water crossing or road including:
- water crossing cleaning for the purpose of maintaining the flow of water
- grading of existing trails or roads
- clearing of existing ditches
- gravelling of existing trails or roads
- clearing or brushing of existing road or trail surface for roads that are open to the public and over which vehicles can safely travel OR are passable, but not those roads or trails that have been decommissioned or are planned for decommissioning (as documented in road use management strategy).
- snow plowing
- sanding or dust control
- repair or replacement of posted signage
- the following activities do not require a work permit provided that the proponent follows the rules outlined in O. Reg. 239/13. If the proponent cannot follow any or all of the rules, a work permit is required to conduct the activity.
- construction or placement of buildings within unpatented mining claims
- dredging of shore lands previously dredged
- relocating rocks on shore lands
- maintenance, repair or replacement of erosion control structures on shore lands
- removal of invasive aquatic vegetation from shore lands
- removal of native aquatic vegetation from shore lands as per Schedule 2
- construction or placement of buildings within unpatented mining claims
Agencies exempt from work permit requirements include:
- federal or provincial Crown (e.g. Ministry of Transportation, Ontario Northland Railway, Ministry of Infrastructure), including agents of the Crown and contractors working on their behalf, as the PLA is not binding on the Crown;
- activities carried out by TransCanada Pipelines, as most activities are regulated (e.g. works within approved right-of-way, including installation of pipe and cathodic protection facilities) and by the National Energy Board (NEB). Activities not regulated by federal legislation (e.g. road construction) will require a work permit;
- all construction and maintenance activities carried out by federally regulated railway companies (e.g. Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway) within or adjacent to a railway right of way, under the authority of Section 95 of the Canada Transportation Act.
Lands and /or activities where work permit requirements do not apply:
Note: O. Reg. 349/98 requires that a work permit be obtained to undertake certain "disruptive" mineral exploration activities in specified areas. These work permits are issued by MNDM. The areas to which this regulation applies are described in a Schedule to the regulation.
- any activity on federal lands or waterways (e.g. Rideau Canal, Trent-Severn Waterway);
- any activity on land subject to a lease of the surface rights issued under the Mining Act, except to the extent that such lands are shore lands, as these activities are governed by the terms and conditions of the lease as administered by the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines;
- exploration and evaluation work with respect to aggregates (except where the subject lands are shore lands) as activities within an aggregate permit area which would otherwise be subject to a work permit, are to be addressed through the site or operating plan, or site or operating plan amendment submitted by the aggregate permittee (Note: an aggregate permit under the Aggregate Resources Act is required for the extraction of aggregate;
- filling of shore lands when the filling consists of rock being placed into a crib(s) for a dock, boathouse, etc. This activity is considered to be part of the construction of a structure on shore lands and is not subject to work permit requirements unless the crib(s) is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands;
- repairs and additions to structures on shore lands, unless the addition to the structure is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands. This exemption does not apply to the filling of Crown land (including a new erosion control structures, see definition);
3.2 Eligible work permit applicants
A work permit will only be issued to an eligible applicant that meets one of the following criteria:
- an individual’s name or legal entity who will receive a "direct benefit" from the proposed work; or
- a contractor or other person who has written authorization from the individual or legal entity who will receive a direct benefit, to act as an agent on their behalf.
For example, in the case of work on shore lands, a waterfront property owner would be an eligible applicant that would receive a "direct benefit" from the work that occurred on the shore lands. In the case of an application to construct a trapline cabin on public land, the holder of a registered trapline would be an eligible applicant.
The applicant will provide a copy of the work permit to the contractor or other person who has written authorization from the applicant receiving the "direct benefit" from the proposed work.
In addition, when some or all of the land that is the subject of an application is not owned by the applicant (e.g. shore lands that include a flooded municipal road allowance), or is separated from the applicant’s property (e.g. by a municipal road allowance), the applicant must provide written consent from the other land owner (e.g. the municipality).
3.3 Roads and trails
Paragraph 2 (1) 2 of O. Reg. 239/13, states that a work permit is required for the construction of a trail, water crossing or road on public land. This section is subject to the exemption related to the Crown Forest Sustainability Act, 1994 (CFSA) contained in subsection 4 (1) of O. Reg. 239/13.
O. Reg. 239/13 also defines a trail as a path over public lands not used for mineral exploration or extraction. Therefore the construction of a trail for mineral exploration does not require a work permit. However, the construction of a road for mineral exploration requires a work permit. Construction of all water crossings, whether they are part of a trail or a road, requires a work permit.
In consideration of the intent of O. Reg. 239/13, the following clarification applies:
- Construction of a road involves the construction of a travel corridor that is reasonably capable of allowing travel by motor vehicles licensed to operate on a King’s Highway as defined in the Highway Traffic Act (e.g. personal or commercial cars and trucks). Construction of all season and winter roads normally involves the removal of trees and vegetation, grubbing or the addition of aggregate material to make the corridor passable by the vehicles mentioned above. Construction also includes non-routine maintenance operations, which result in a marked improvement to the condition of an existing road, which would include the following:
- changing the standard of an existing road to a higher one, such as widening of the driving surface, realigning bad corners or flattening a hill; and
- replacement or upgrading of a deteriorated water crossing, (i.e. culvert or bridge).
- Construction of a trail would involve the construction of a travel corridor that is more minor in nature than a road. Construction of a trail would normally involve the removal of trees and vegetation to allow the passage of certain vehicles (e.g. ATVs, snowmobiles). Construction of a trail also includes upgrades to an existing trail where the trail is being significantly altered (e.g. widening or relocation of trail). Generally there would be no addition of aggregate material. Portions of the trail may be levelled out with machinery.
It is not the intent of the Regulation to regulate pedestrian travel. Likewise the creation of trails that do not include construction is not affected by the Regulation (e.g. where the trail is created by repetitive use and no actual construction has occurred).
With the exception of water crossings approved under a Forest Management Plan under the CFSA, construction, repair and replacement of all water crossings on Crown land require a work permit, whether they are part of a trail (including trails for mineral exploration) or a road. Bridges and culverts larger than 3 metres in diameter are also subject to requirements outlined in the Crown Land Bridge Manual (2008).
3.4 Privately owned shore lands
O. Reg. 239/13 defines shore lands as lands covered or seasonally inundated by the water of a lake, river, stream or pond. This definition includes public and private land. Considerations where private shore lands are subject to the regulation include the following:
- the private shore lands are contiguous with public land or an unopened municipal shoreline road allowance, (in the case of flooded lands) and have the potential to affect public land (e.g. Crown lake bed); and
- the proposed works are to be carried out within a "seasonally inundated" area, meaning that the site has been covered by water during the past 12 months. For example, a waterfront property is subject to a work permit requirement for filling (e.g. constructions of a break wall) on shore lands where the proposed work is located at a low water position which restricts the normal movement of the ambulatory water boundary within the shore lands.
A work permit is not required to fill the privately owned portion of a shore land that is inundated by the water of a lake or river, only as a result of a freshet.
Other examples of privately owned shore lands not subject to work permit requirements include:
- artificially created municipal drains;
- wetlands not associated with a navigable water body; and
- non-navigable streams, rivers, ponds and lakes as the bed of these are not Crown land (refer to Policy PL 2.02.02 Ownership Determination – Beds of Navigable Waters).
Note: Authorization may still be required for these works under the Lakes and Rivers Improvement Act, Fisheries Act, Conservations Authorities Act or other legislation.
3.5 Structural occupation of shore lands
A work permit is required to construct or place a structure or a combination of structures that is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands. When determining the amount of shore lands that will be occupied by a proposed structure pursuant to paragraph 6 of subsection 2 (1) of O. Reg. 239/13, only the portion of the structure (e.g. crib) that is in physical contact with the shore lands is to be considered, not the overall size of the structure.
Where the structure is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands, occupational authority may also be required, therefore the works should be reviewed in accordance with O. Reg. 161/17 "Occupation of Public Lands under Section 21.1 of the Act" and PL 4.02.01, Application Review and Land Disposition Process if occupational authority is required.
Repairs and additions to structures on shore lands do not require a work permit unless the addition to the structure is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands. When the filling consists of rock being placed into a crib(s) for a dock, boathouse, etc., the activity is considered to be part of the construction of a structure on shore lands and is not subject to work permit requirements unless the crib(s) is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands
Structures on shore lands do not include new erosion control structures. New erosion control structures require a permit, as they are considered "filling" of Crown land.
3.6 Proposed work affecting shore processes
New erosion control structures or breakwalls require a work permit including: those constructed against the shoreline and those that extend well beyond, are perpendicular or are located remote from the normal shoreline (e.g. groynes, breakwaters, beach sills, etc.).
These types of structures can have a significant effect on shore processes often to the detriment of neighbouring landowners and aquatic resources. Review of applications for this type of work are also subject to the following requirements:
New groynes require a work permit. Shoreline structures that function as groynes however can have serious impacts including accumulation of weeds, debris, and deposition of littoral material on the updrift side, as well as accelerated erosion in downdrift areas. Groynes may also have navigation and environmental impacts. Because of these impacts and potential liability to the Crown, new groynes are discouraged. Applications for new groynes and other structures that extend out into the water will not be approved unless they are supported by detailed investigations by an engineer that can provide coastal and marine expertise.
The applicant is required to confirm to MNRF in writing that they have consulted updrift and downdrift riparian landowners for a distance of 150 meters or 10 times the projection of the groyne into the lake, whichever is greater. The exception to this would be where the groyne will be situated between two existing groynes, provided the projection of the new groyne is equal to or less than the existing groyne.
Maintenance, repair or replacement work
Maintenance, repair or replacement of existing erosion control structures (e.g. groynes, breakwalls, breakwaters, etc.), do not require a work permit, provided that rules in O. Reg. 239/13 are complied with by the owner, including the requirement to register the activity with MNRF.
3.7 Aquatic vegetation removal
Provided the criteria in the Regulation are followed, a work permit is not required for the mechanical removal or removal by hand of invasive or native aquatic vegetation. The intent of the Regulation is to provide criteria for the removal of vegetation that has roots attached to the bed of the lake, river, stream or pond and not floating aquatic vegetation that is not physically attached or rooted to shore lands. In addition, the Regulation does not apply to removal of aquatic vegetation from shore lands by means of an herbicide. This type of removal is regulated by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change.
3.8 The Crown’s duty to consult
The Crown has a duty to consult, and if appropriate, accommodate First Nation and Métis communities where it is contemplating issuing a work permit or other authorization that has the potential to adversely affect existing or credibly asserted Aboriginal or treaty rights protected under Section 35 of Canada’s Constitution Act, 1982. MNRF must be satisfied that the duty to consult, and if appropriate accommodate, has been met before issuing a work permit.
3.9 Work permit application refusals
O. Reg. 975 states that an officer shall issue a work permit to any person who applies. An officer however, may refuse to issue a work permit if the officer is of the opinion that the work will be inconsistent with any of the criteria listed below:
- is contrary to law;
- is inconsistent with or does not conform to,
- an official plan as defined in the Planning Act,
- a Ministry Resource Management Plan,
- the Ministry District Land Use Guidelines,
- a policy and procedure directive of the Ministry of Natural Resources;
- is likely to create a threat to public safety or to a natural resource including Crown lands, waters and watercourses, forests, flora, wildlife and fisheries;
- the applicant is not an eligible applicant per section 3.2 of this policy;
- the proposed work will result in a significant, unwanted change in access patterns over public land, such as the creation of access to a previously inaccessible area;
- the proposed work will impact negatively existing or potential public use of the work site or adjacent area;
- the proposed work will occur on public land and the applicant refuses to obtain, or MNRF is not prepared to issue the subsequently needed land use occupational authority which and does not meet the criteria outlined in O. Reg. 161/17, resulting in a requirement for land use occupational authority which the applicant refuses to obtain, or MNRF is not prepared to issue;
- the proposed work will be situated on public land and the applicant is in arrears with respect to any rent or fee related to the occupation of any public lands under the PLA;
- the proposed work is inconsistent with the goals of a provincial policy statement issued under the Planning Act;
- the proposed work is contrary to the public interest and/or may result in liability to the Provincial Crown; or
- the proposed work is inconsistent with the protection provided under Section 35 of Canada’s Constitution Act, 1982 for existing or credibly asserted Aboriginal or treaty rights.
In 1988 the Public Lands Act (PLA) was amended. Included in those amendments was the introduction of work permit requirements on public and shore lands. These requirements became Section 14. Section 14 was enacted to enable better regulation of specified activities occurring on public land and to protect public land from being adversely impacted by activities undertaken on adjacent, privately owned shore lands (e.g. the obliteration of natural evidence of the common boundary between public and private land by filling or dredging projects occurring on land covered or seasonally inundated by water).
In 1996, Bill 26 (Savings and Restructuring Act) amended the PLA by repealing and replacing Section 14 to allow the Lieutenant Governor in Council to make regulations that prohibit certain activities from occurring on public land and shore lands, unless the activity is carried out in accordance with a work permit. This amendment was proclaimed on October 4, 1996, after O. Reg. 453/96 was approved and filed on October 3, 1996. This regulation was later amended by O. Reg. 335/00. In 2013, O. Reg. 453/96 was revoked and replaced with O. Reg. 239/13 "Activities on Public Lands and Shore Lands – Work Permits and Exemptions", effective January 1, 2014. The new regulation exempted some activities from requiring a work permit, provided that rules detailed in the regulation were followed. For some of these activities that no longer required a work permit, registration with the Ministry is required.
Paragraphs 1 to 6 under subsection 2(1) of O. Reg. 239/13, requires that specified activities on public land or shore lands be carried out only in accordance with a work permit. Section 14 of the PLA provides the statutory basis for the regulation and the means by which compliance with the regulation can be achieved through enforcement.
In 2017, O. Reg. 239/13 was amended to clarify MNRF's policy intent that a work permit is required for the construction or placement structures on shore lands where the structure or portion of the structure is in physical contact with more than 15 square metres of shore lands.
This policy applies provincially to the administration of work permits under Section 14 of the PLA; O. Reg. 975; and O. Reg. 239/13, all of which should be used as reference when implementing this policy.
This policy does not apply to permits or approvals required under other legislation (e.g. Lakes and Rivers Improvement Act), or to a permit required under Section 13 of the PLA (for restricted areas).
