Understand the MVCA Regulation Policies
The Minister of Natural Resources first approved Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) regulations under Section 28 of the Conservation Authorities Act in 1988. Since that time, MVCA has enforced regulations with respect to natural hazards.
In 2006, the regulation was revised and pursuant to Ontario Regulation 153/06 (Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alterations to Shorelines and Watercourses) the MVCA Board of Directors has approved the local policies to be used when reviewing applications. The regulations policy will be updated and consolidated in 2019 to reflect recent changes.
