             INTRODUCTION

             A   s of July 1, 2013, individuals and businesses may register with the Ministry of Natural
                 Resources (MNR, or the Ministry) on the Ministry of Natural Resources’ Registry (MNR
             Registry) to undertake certain activities related to the Endangered Species Act, 2007 (ESA),
             provided the proposed activity meets eligibility requirements prescribed in regulation.

             In general, an eligible activity is one that is likely to have adverse effects on one or more
             species listed as endangered or threatened, and in some cases extirpated, on the Species
             at Risk in Ontario (SARO) List or their habitat, and meets the requirements outlined in the
             appropriate section of Ontario Regulation (O. Reg.) 242/08.

             This guide provides information on the completing and submitting a paper copy of the
             “Notice of Activity Form and Other Notices under the Endangered Species Act, 2007”
             within the MNR Registry to notify MNR about one of fifteen options corresponding to
             sections of O. Reg. 242/08. Registrants will be required to select the Notice of Activity that
             is appropriate for their proposed activity based on the details of their activity, and in some
             cases, the species at risk involved.

             For information on the Notice of Activity Form and Other Notices under the Endangered
             Species Act, 2007 under O. Reg. 242/08, visit www.e-laws.gov.on.ca or call 1-800-668-9938
             (Toll Free across Canada). For any additional assistance, contact the MNR Registry and
             Approval Services Centre by calling toll free 1-855-613-4256.

             It’s important to remember that individuals, businesses, municipalities or provincial
             ministries proposing to undertake an activity that does not meet the requirements in
             O. Reg. 242/08 may need to seek an ESA authorization (e.g. a permit). In these cases,
             please contact your local MNR office. For a listing of local MNR offices, contact MNR’s
             Registry and Approval Services Centre.

             This guide contains the best available information as of the publishing date. The Ministry of
             Natural Resources may update this user guide regularly to ensure that it provides accurate
             information and guidance for users.

             Note: The Notice of Activity Form and Other Notices under the Endangered Species
             Act, 2007 can also be submitted electronically through MNR’s On-line Registry. For more

             DISCLAIMER

             This guide should not be construed as legal advice. All legislative requirements for the
             activities to be registered on the MNR Registry are set out in O. Reg. 242/08 of the ESA.

             A registrant must determine whether they are eligible to use the regulation to undertake
             the activity and can fulfil all of the conditions within the applicable section of the regulation.
             Failure to do so could result in a contravention of the ESA and could lead to prosecution
             under the Act.

             Where a registrant uses a third party to undertake all or part of the activity, the registrant is
             responsible for ensuring the conditions of the regulation are satisfied

             Permissions, approvals or other authorizations may be required from landowners , other
             agencies and/or levels of government (e.g., a conservation authority, municipality, federal
             or provincial government, etc.) before an activity can be initiated. Additional authorizations
             from the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) may also be required for some activities (e.g.,
             Wildlife Scientific Collectors Authorizations). It is the registrant’s responsibility to ensure
             that all other permissions, approvals, and authorizations are acquired before proceeding
             with the proposed activity.

             WATCH FOR THESE SYMBOLS

             Before registering, the registrant should confirm that their activity is eligible for registration.
             Please consult O. Reg. 242/08 for details about the legislative requirements. The registrant

             and accountable for the activity that is likely to result in an impact to a species at risk or its
             habitat, who is required to register on the MNR Registry.

                                                                                                                  5

             Important Note: be sure to retain a copy of your completed form as proof of registration

             3. RECEIVE (AND RETAIN) A CONFIRMATION OF REGISTRATION
                After completing and submitting the Notice of Activity Form and Other Notices under
                the Endangered Species Act, 2007, you will receive a “Confirmation of Registration”
                within 15 business days that includes information about the species and the activity that
                you registered.

                     The “Confirmation of Registration” must be retained as long as required by O. Reg.
                     242/08.

                     The Confirmation of Registration retention requirements may vary among the Notice of
                     Activities. For example:

                     n   for some activities, the Confirmation of Registration must be kept on file at the
                         registrant’s address
                     n   other activities require that the Confirmation of Registration be kept at the site during
                         the activity.

               PLEASE TAKE NOTE
             The registrant is advised to provide a copy of the Confirmation of Registration to any
             agents or employees who may be working on the site without the registrant present. In
             some cases, this may be a regulatory requirement.

             MAINTAINING YOUR REGISTRATION
             If any details provided in the registration change throughout the course of the activity,
             you must update your Registry submission to reflect those changes. Any changes must be
             updated in the Registry within 10 business days of the change.

             The registration must also be updated if, for example, it is determined that an eligible
             species that was not originally identified in the Notice of Activity is likely to be impacted or
             if the details of the activity change.

                  PLEASE TAKE NOTE
             It is the responsibility of the registrant to ensure MNR has the most up to date
             information.

             To update your registration, contact the MNR Registry and Approval Services Centre by
             calling toll free 1-855-613-4256. You will need to provide the number on your Confirmation

             Part 1a) Personal Information for Individuals – fill in this section if you are registering as
             an individual
             When registering as an Individual, only a single contact person can be identified. Personal

             authority of Section 53 of the Endangered Species Act, 2007 and will be used for Registry
             database administration, audit/enforcement purposes, analysis, and Species At Risk
             program management.

             Questions about the collection and retention of personal information can be directed to:

             Or by calling toll-free: 1-855-613-4256.

             Part 1b) Business Information – fill in this section if you are registering as a Business
             Businesses, agencies or organizations should provide their registrant information at a scale
             reflective of their organizational structure (e.g. regional or local offices), depending on
             where the responsibility for the activity rests within their organization.

             If your business collects HST then the Canada Revenue Agency will have assigned the
             company a 9-digit identifying business number which must be provided as part of the
             registration. For more detailed instructions on completing this section of the form, please
             refer to Appendix A.
                                                                                                            8

             Business registrants must identify the primary contact, or the “Business Accountable
             Person” for the activity and may identify additional contacts, if desired.

             The primary contact for the activity may be the registrant (e.g. for businesses without a
             Canada Revenue Agency business number), or the primary contact may be a designated
             party or agent chosen to act on behalf of the registrant. The primary contact should be
             knowledgeable about the on-site and day-to-day undertakings of the activity.

             It is recommended that the registrant grant all contacts the authority to discuss details
             related to the activity with MNR representatives, and be able to answer questions regarding
             how the regulatory conditions are being met (e.g. steps to minimize adverse effects on
             each species) upon request from MNR.

             Examples of additional contacts include the property owner, site manager, supervisor
             of third party contractors undertaking the activity, contractors providing services for a
             component of the activity, or individuals acting as registration administrators on the behalf
             of the registrant. Contact information in the registry must be kept up to date.

             Please refer to Appendix A for additional support in completing this section.

                     TIPS / BEST PRACTICES

                 PLEASE TAKE NOTE
             Some of the Notices of Activity have specific requirements for the completion of the Notice
             of Activity Form and Other Notices under the Endangered Species Act, 2007. Additional
             details about the information requirements for each activity are provided in Section 3.0 of
             this document.

             Part 1c: Address Information (Individual and Business)
             Businesses and individuals registrants must provide a physical address that identifies where
             the registrant is located, which may be different than a mailing address where mail is received.

             The following three address types can be used to provide the appropriate physical address

             Physical Surveyed Address
             Used in some organized areas and unorganized townships that have been surveyed. This
             system refers to the lot/concession/geographic townships that were originally laid out.
             n Lot Number: The lot number as surveyed in the original township survey;

             n Concession Number: The concession number as surveyed in the original township

                survey;
             n Geographical Township: The name of the original township when first surveyed. Please

                note this is not in general the same as the current municipal name;
             n Part Lot Description: Over time the original lot may have been severed. If there is

                additional information to provide, please insert here (e.g. North Half, Pt 2 of Lot 1)
             n Additional Location Information: Used to provide any additional details that would help

                to identify or locate the physical location.

             Physical Unsurveyed Address
             n Used primarily in unorganized areas but can include any part of the Province. This system
               asks for a description of the location that would allow others to find the site, using map
               coordinates.
             n Location description: This field is available for registrants to describe their location

               where no civic or survey information exists. Please describe as clearly as possible the
               physical address (e.g. Mile marker 87 on CPR main track west of Thunder Bay);
             n Unincorporated Township: Townships that have been surveyed but never became

               municipalities are referred to as ‘unincorporated’. Please identify if the site is within an
               unincorporated township.
             n Unincorporated area: Areas that have never been surveyed or formed municipalities are

               referred to as unincorporated but there may be a name for the general area (e.g. Algoma
               District)
             n Additional Location Information: Used to provide additional details that would help to

               identify or locate the physical location. Map coordinates can be entered here.

             Mailing Address:
             A mailing address is mandatory. If the physical civic address (e.g. where the registrant is
             situated) is the same as the mailing address, the registrant should check the “My mailing
             address is the same as my Civic address” check box.

             If the registrant’s mailing address is different from their physical civic address, or if the
             physical location is a surveyed or unsurveyed address, the mailing address section must be
             completed.

             Once you have provided a physical address, there are two mailing address options. You can
             provide either a street address or a postal delivery address.

             For more detailed instructions for each field of this section of form, please refer to
             Appendix B of this guide.

                                                                                                           10

             PART 2: ACTIVITY INFORMATION

                 PLEASE TAKE NOTE
             Please make note of all mandatory fields * when completing this section of the form.

             2.1 Activity
             The registrant must indicate the type of activity being undertaken by making the
             appropriate selection. Some Notices of Activity require the registrant to select a sub-
             activity.

             Only one Notice of Activity (and applicable sub-activity) can be selected for each
             registration. In situations where an activity will require the submission of more than one
             Activity Notice, the registrant will need to submit separate registrations.

             2.2 Additional Activity Information
             Some Notices of Activity require this section to be completed to provide more details
             about the activity being registered. Additional guidance for each Notice of Activity is
             provided in Section 3.0 of this Guide.

             2.3 Species
             Registrants are required to identify all the applicable species by common and scientific
             (latin) names. Please refer to the Species at Risk in Ontario list (SARO) and Ontario
             Regulation 242/08 for a complete list, or contact the MNR Registry and Approval Services
             Centre for assistance by calling toll free 1-855-613-4256.

             It is the registrant’s responsibility to accurately assess which species are likely to be
             affected by the activity (through impacts to individuals of the species or through impacts
             to protected habitat), based on the best available information. This includes determining
             whether protected species or their habitats are known to be at or near the location of the
             proposed activity, and considering whether the activity is likely to affect species at risk.

                PLEASE TAKE NOTE
             Some species are not eligible for registration because some of the sections within O. Reg.
             242/08 do not apply to all species at risk. The applicable sections of O. Reg. 242/08 identify
             which species are, or are not, eligible. It is the registrant’s responsibility to ensure that the
             species likely to be affected by their activity is (are) eligible for registration.

             2.4 Date of Planned Activity
             Enter the start and/or end dates for the activity. In some cases, these dates are required
             by O. Reg. 242/08, but not all Notices require this information. For additional details, see
             Section 3.0 of this Guide.

                                                                                                            11

             PART 3: SITE INFORMATION

             The registrant is required to provide details about the site at which the activity will occur.
             The following information provides guidance for site information requirements across all
             activity notices. Any additional activity-specific site information requirements are provided
             in Section 3.0 of this Guide.

             Section 3.1: North American Industry Classification Code – NAICS (for Business only)
             For NAICS references and more information about this section, please refer to Appendix A.

             Section 3.2: Site Contact Information (for Business only)
             Provide yes/no answers regarding the Site Contact Person. If the Site Contact Person is
             different from the Accountable Person and the Business Contact Person you will also need
             to provide information about the Site Contact Person. Note: an “Accountable Person” is
             the individual in the business who is legally responsible for its operation.

             Section 3.3: Site Location Information (For Individual and Business)
             This step involves identifying the site where the proposed activity will occur. The
             information provided to define the site must accurately represent the geographic location(s)
             at which the activity will occur.

             An activity site may have multiple locations associated with it that represent different
             components of the registered activity. For example, different addresses identified within a
             single site may indicate:

             n       the location for bridge repair and the location where the beneficial action for an aquatic
                     species is being undertaken, or the location where mussels will be relocated;
             n       the start and end points of a corridor for an infrastructure project;
             n       all corner posts (CP) or witness posts (WP) of a mining claim on which the early
                     exploration activity is taking place; or
             n       the activity site for the removal of safe harbour habitat.

             When multiple Site Location addresses are listed, one location must be identified as the
             primary location. If only one Site Location is provided, it is deemed to be the primary
             location.

             Registrants can select one of the following address types to describe Site Location
             address(es) : civic address, surveyed address and unsurveyed address. If possible,
             geographic coordinates for site locations should be provided. Geographic coordinates are
             included within the unsurveyed address type. For more detailed instructions for each field
             in this section of form, please refer to Appendix B of this Guide.

             The requirements for identifying a site, or providing address location(s) within a site, may
             vary across the different activity types. In addition, some Notices of Activity require the use
             of the Additional Location information text box to provide more detailed description of an
             address. For activity-specific site information requirements see section 3.0 below.           12

             that the person completing the form is aware of the applicable regulations and agrees to
             follow the rules contained within the regulations. The attestation includes:

             n       First Name/ Last Name: The legal name of the person to whom the Confirmation of
                     Registration will be issued and, for businesses, identifies the accountable person;
             n       Company Name: The legal name of the Company if the registration is made by a
                     business;
             n       Title: The title of the person making this statement on behalf of the company. This
                     should be the accountable person listed for businesses;

                  PLEASE TAKE NOTE
             Documentation associated with a Notice of Activity
             Some Notices of Activity require the registrant to keep records and prepare supporting
             documentation, including mitigation plans, monitoring records and reports. Typically this
             information must be kept on file by the registrant, and be provided to MNR upon request.
             The registrant should consult O. Reg. 242/08 to determine if the applicable Notice of
             Activity requires supporting records or documentation, and whether it should be kept on
             file or submitted to the MNR.

             SECTION 3.0: ACTIVITY SPECIFIC REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS

             This section provides detailed information for each of the fifteen Notices of Activity
             because some requirements vary among the Notice of Activity types.

             3.1 NOTICE OF ACTIVITY: AQUATIC SPECIES (S. 23.4) – ACTIVITIES IN THE HABITAT
             OF CERTAIN FISH OR MUSSELS
             Part 1: Registrant Information:
                Registrants for the Aquatic Species Notice of Activity may use either service type
                (business or individual). Due to the nature of the eligible activities, most registrants for
                the Aquatic Species Notice of Activity will register using business services. Services for
                individuals will ensure personal information is handled in accordance with the Freedom
                of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

             Part 2: Activity Information
             2.1 Activity:
                The Aquatic Species Notice of Activity requires that the registrant provide a description
                of the activity being registered. As part of this description, the registrant will select one
                of the following activity sub-activity types:

                     n   Bridge or Pier,
                     n   Culvert,
                     n   Pipeline or conduit
                     n   Other structure.

                     Some structures (e.g. dams and hydro-electric generating stations) and some methods
                     for undertaking activities are excluded from this regulation. Registrants are advised to
                     consult O. Reg. 242/08 to confirm that their activity is eligible for registration.

                                                                                                                14

             2.2 Additional Activity Information:
                The following information should be provided in the Additional Activity Information text
                box:

                     n   A description of the structure (if “other structure” was selected),
                     n    Why the activity is required (e.g. construction, maintenance, repair, modification,
                         expansion, removal, or replacement),
                     n   The official name of the watercourse where the activity is being undertaken, and
                     n   Which beneficial action for the species will be undertaken. The beneficial action
                         should be consistent with the list of options provided in O. Reg. 242/08 section
                         23.4(11) (e.g. remediation of an area of degraded riparian habitat).

             2.3 Species:
                The Aquatic Species Notice of Activity requires that the registration identify the name
                of every eligible species that will likely be affected by the activity (through impacts to
                individuals of the species or through impacts to protected habitat). Only the species
                listed in the Schedule of section 23.4 of O. Reg. 242/08 are eligible for registration.

                     As of July 1, 2013 this list includes the following mussel species:

                    i.    Eastern Pondmussel,

             2.4 Date of Planned Activity:
                The Aquatic Species Notice of Activity requires that proposed start and end dates be
                provided for the registered activity.

             Part 3: Site Information
               The Aquatic Species Notice of Activity requires a description of the location at which the
               activity will be carried out. Each activity must be registered individually. The preferred
               method for providing site and address information is to provide the geographic
               coordinates (e.g. UTM Easting and Northing or Latitude and Longitude).

                     The primary address should indicate where the activity is taking place (e.g. the location
                     of the construction of the eligible structure). Some locations are excluded from this
                     regulation. Registrants are advised to consult O. Reg. 242/08 to confirm that the location
                     of their activity is not within an excluded watercourse.

                     Registrants should use subsequent address field(s) to indicate the location(s) where the
                     beneficial action(s) for the species will be undertaken and, if applicable, the coordinates
                     of the species relocation site (e.g. for activities likely to impact mussel species). Any
                     descriptive information regarding the location can be provided in the Additional Location
                     Information text box.

                     For more detailed instructions for each field of this section of form, please refer to
