*Land uses and activities existing prior to the coming into force of the Pickering Airport Site Zoning Regulations are deemed to be legally non-conforming.

**Contact Transport Canada for land uses not listed. When introducing permitted land uses, it is still prudent for landowners to use recommended mitigation techniques or "best practices" to ensure that the level of risk is not increased to a level that is restricted by the AZR.

***While a "No" indicates that a particular land use is restricted in one or all of the bird zones, this use may still be permitted if acceptable bird mitigation techniques are employed.
