​​Regulation Mapping PDFs

Refer to this tool to assess your potential development site. In accordance with provincial criteria and Ontario Regulation 179/06, our regulation mapping displays hazards in the Lake Simcoe watershed.

The information is based on the most up-to-date information available at the time the mapping was prepared. The regulation limits are governed by Ontario Regulation 179/06, thereby resolving any discrepancies in the mapping that may occur. Periodic maintenance of the mapping ensures its consistency and usefulness. The regulation limit shape file is therefore periodically updated, based on new data acquired.

Please note that in the case of discrepancies between the mapping and the actual features on your property, the text of Ontario Regulation 179/06 prevails and the jurisdiction of the LSRCA may extend beyond the areas shown on the maps. Before undertaking any of the kinds of activities referred to in the Regulation in or near the areas shown on the maps, please seek professional advice and/or contact the LSCRA to determine the actual boundaries of the restricted areas.

Furthermore, please note that your property may be subject to other regulations under various other statutes, such as the Greenbelt legislation and municipal bylaws.
