    Yesterday's Ontario Government release widens permitted construction activity to include the beginning of below grade condos and apartments and continuance of above-grade projects. Again, there is no specific mention of pre-approval support or preparation studies such as archaeology.  This is more than likely a significant oversight on the part of those drafting these documents.  In fact, we located today on a government website a definition of site preparation activity and servicing which clearly does not include work such as ours.  We are seeking clarification from government and the housing industry.  We will post new information tomorrow.
