Planning an outdoor project?

These general environmental work windows are a good place to start. Timing work within these periods of least risk can help to: minimize harm to habitat, fish and wildlife, keep the project in compliance with environmental laws and reduce project complexity and costs. Best work, or least risk, windows are when fish, birds and mammals are not spawning, nesting or raising young.

Even when work can be carried out within the “best work window,” permits or notifications to the relevant government agencies may still be required, including a City of Campbell River Environmental Development Permit. Sometimes, projects have a number of environmental features and there is no ideal best time. A Qualified Environmental Professional can help to minimize damage, ensure the right permits are in place and keep your project on track.

For specific environmental timing windows, access the Environmental Timing Window booklet, or the condensed Environmental Timing Window poster.
