WHY IS THIS TOPIC IMPORTANT

  • Impacts an organizations bottom line

Archaeology and heritage concerns often come up late in project planning, and can result in significant project costs and delays.

  • Impacts an organizations reputation

Most provinces have regulations in place than can result in orders to stop work and complete mitigation if archaeological sites or other heritage resources are encountered during construction. Failing to do so can result in substantial fines, or in some cases, prison terms.
