Request a Project Review

The self-assessment should be used to determine whether or not you should submit your project for review.

If your project is regulated by the National Energy Board or the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, or takes place in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia or Prince Edward Island, consult our guidance on regulatory partnerships before contacting DFO.

A project authorization may be required as a next step if you cannot avoid or mitigate serious harm to fish. It is recommended that an Application for Authorization only be pursued after a project review has been completed.
