User Guide for Dock Authorizations – Government of Alberta
There are new requirements in place for placing docks and mooring structures in Alberta Lakes!  These documents outline the requirements and process for an individual to obtain an authorization when required, to place a temporary, seasonal dock for personal recreational use in Alberta’s water bodies.

NEW:  There are 2 ways seasonal docks are authorized in Alberta:

-By the general permission created by a disturbance standard if the standard is followed; or
-By a specific authorization issued by the department.

The Alberta government has introduced a disturbance standard to simplify and streamline the process for placing temporary seasonal mooring structures.

The disturbance standard eliminates the need for waterfront, semi-waterfront and municipal waterfront property owners to apply for an annual authorization, provided their docks, boat lifts, swimming platforms and buoy anchors meet a set of standard requirements.

Note:  If you as the applicant are NOT the owner of the waterfront land parcel and want to place a dock or mooring structure off of one of the reserve parcels in the Summer Village, please email the administration office at [email protected] as the Summer Village currently holds a permit for these areas.
