Formal Proposal Requirements

If you are invited to submit a formal proposal, you will need to provide a higher level of detail on the resort development you wish to propose.

The formal proposal you submit will be evaluated according to its site-specific merits and should include all of the following components:

  • Your vision, including development goals and objectives
  • A description of the project
  • A technical inventory and analysis of the proposed resort lands, with appropriate mapping
  • An environmental inventory of the proposed development lands
  • Development concepts for the resort’s primary attractions, illustrating and discussing its balanced resort capacity
  • Development concepts for staging and support facilities
  • The type of all-seasons development and the amount of accommodation planned
  • The main development phases, with an emphasis on how the first phase will be structured
  • Infrastructure capability balanced to the size and scale of the concept
  • Environmental issues and hazards resulting from the proposed development and planned remedial measures
  • Economic and social impacts and land use issues, including proposed means of conflict resolution
  • First Nations relationships and proposed mitigation of potential issues
  • Economic feasibility, including high level presentation of cost estimates and expected streams of income
  • Ownership and management structure
  • Evidence of your financial capability to undertake and complete the master planning and approval process

When the provincial government receives your formal proposal, it will coordinate a provincial inter-agency, First Nations and local government review.

A successful proposal will be one that is judged to make the base use of the available Crown land, with the least environmental impact and the best remedial measures to mitigate that impact. However, the provincial government is not obligated to select or approve any formal proposal.

If your proposal is found to be acceptable, you will sign an interim agreement with the Province and will be invited to prepare a resort master plan. View the Master Plan Requirements for this stage.
