Preliminary Screenings

This registry includes notices of applications or development proposals and any associated preliminary screenings that the Review Board receives. The Review Board receives these documents because the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act requires that the Land and Water Boards and other regulators, government departments, or First Nations that conduct preliminary screenings communicate this information to the Review Board. 

A preliminary screening is a preliminary examination of a development’s potential for impacts on the environment, and the potential for public concern (see this infographic preliminary screening and p8-21 of the EIA Guidelines for more information on screenings).

The Review Board does not conduct preliminary screenings. If you have comments or concerns about a development please contact the preliminary screener - contact details can be found in the notification documents below.
