Online Services for environmental permissions

Our sign in has changed.

Public Secure has moved to a new platform and is now referred to as My Ontario Account.

If you have an existing Public Secure account, no action is required from you. You will continue to use your Public Secure login credentials to sign in to your My Ontario Account to access the online services for environmental permissions.

If you created a ministry account prior to July 18, 2020 and have not used it since this date, you will need to create a new My Ontario Account and link it to your ministry account. You will be prompted to reset/recover your profile through the profile creation process if your information matches the ministry's records. If you are not prompted to reset/recover your profile, please contact us.
