Applications and Permits

Decisions made by the Industrial Siting Council on rules, regulations and permit requests are posted as soon as possible after each meeting of the council.

Some of these Facility Pages are still under construction and being developed.

The Industrial Siting Division assesses socio-economic and environmental impacts for companies planning major industrial developments before they begin the construction permit process.

We will work with you to determine the steps you need to take – and which permits you need – for the creation or expansion of the following:

  • Power plants
  • Transmission lines
  • Wind farms
  • Landfills
  • Waste incinerators
  • The handling of radioactive waste
  • Any large-scale building project
