AHT provides support for Waterfront Toronto and other proponents working on the waterfront by facilitating the approvals process. In order for a project to be implemented on the waterfront a variety of approvals are required depending on the project. Some examples are environmental assessments, federal and/or provincial, and fisheries approvals. When a proponent is working on the waterfront and there is any chance of negatively impacting fish habitat then compensation for the potential loss is required. AHT will help direct and design the aquatic habitat compensation such that it satisfies TWAHRS and will provide aquatic habitat in a location that will benefit the living creatures.
