Request archaeological information

There are several ways that archaeological site information can be obtained by interested parties.

Submit an information request

Archaeological information is available in certain situations to specific individuals or groups like private property owners, industry or land title conveyance professionals, and governments. To request information and advice about archaeological sites within your property or project area, you can submit an Archaeological Information Request Form to the branch. It is important to know that before you can press submit on the form, you will be required to agree to these terms and conditions governing data sharing and access

This service is free of charge, and a response will typically be returned within 1-3 weeks. For faster service, a professional consulting archaeologist can provide you with the information you require.

Request access to the Provincial Archaeological Report Library (PARL)

Authorized PARL users are able to search, view, download and order archaeological reports through a secure online portal. See the Provincial Archaeological Report Library (PARL) page for more information.
