New development applications and proposals will undergo an internal review process to ensure that the type of business proposed is appropriate for the park.
- If the application is deemed appropriate, the ministry will consult with stakeholders.
- Opportunities are limited in provincial parks, so following stakeholder consultation, there will be a public advertisement, usually through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process*.
- See Business Development Review Process.
Contact us well in advance of the time you hope to begin operating or expanding your business as there are several steps to the process.
*Depending on complexity of the application and the number of other applications in progress, the length of time between submitting an application and the awarding of an RFP can vary greatly. Depending on the scope of the project, Order-in-Council approval may be required (e.g., if invested capital is more than $250,000). In addition, approvals from other regulatory agencies may be required. All permits, licences and applications must be in place before construction may begin.
