VIEW PDF (60.26 KB)
Release Date: Jun 04, 2018

Effective immediately, operators must use the following revised submission forms for geophysical program processes:

  • Commencement Notification to Relevant Department Authority
  • Geophysical Site Condition Report for Programs on Public Lands

The updated forms are available on our website, www.aer.ca, Regulating Development > AER Forms > Mines and Minerals Act Forms.

No requirements have changed. The forms must still be submitted using the existing process stated on each form.

We have changed these forms as part of the ongoing implementation of the Integrated Decision Approach. Questions have been added to help identify areas of higher risk and where additional oversight may be required. For more information on the Integrated Decision Approach, please visit our website > Regulating Development > Integrated Decision Approach.

For more information on the revised forms, contact our Customer Contact Centre by phone at 403‑297-8311 or 1-855-297-8311 (toll free) or by email at inquiries@aer.ca.
