The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) reviews applications made under the Planning Act, and provides written comments to its member municipalities. Circulation regulations require that we be notified. We review your application for potential impact on natural resources such as floodplains, wetlands, water quality, steep slopes, and fish and wildlife habitat.
