Application Disposition Process and Tracking

Application Disposition Process and Tracking (ADEPT)

The Operations Division is responsible for the management of geophysical, industrial, commercial and agricultural public land dispositions in accordance with the Public Lands Act, Mines and Minerals Act and related legislation, regulations and policies. The Operations Division has taken a phased approach to automating the business processes required to meet legislative requirements.
