Along with a Heritage Resource Impact Assessment, this online tool will help to ensure the conservation of archaeological heritage. Use the Screening Tool to check if your land and resource development is located in a heritage sensitive area, then submit your proposal for review to determine if a Heritage Resource Impact Assessment (HRIA) is necessary. This tool and related forms are intended for use by land and resource developers.
