Progressive Development Applications

Understanding the web of regulatory authorizations or approvals required for projects can be challenging to decipher. Through our experience developing progressive infrastructure solutions with resource regulators across North America, we provide a unique insight into the legislative landscape and the experience to manage regulatory liaisons to a successful conclusion.

Applications and Permitting

  • Environmental approvals
  • Waste discharge permitting
  • Municipal development permitting
  • Wildlife disturbance permitting
  • Land access agreements
