What do we do

Preliminary Field Reconnaissance (PFR)

A Preliminary Field Reconnaissance (PFR) is a method of survey often employed during an AOA study or during the preliminary stages of an AIA. A PFR involves a strategically designed surface survey design, with the objectives of verifying and determining areas of archaeological potential, as well as cultural heritage resources which may be identified on the surface (such as CMTs, cache pits, historic sites, trails, etc.). A PFR may be conducted without the requirements of a Section 14 Heritage Inspection Permit, issued by the Archaeology Branch.

When a PFR is performed by a professional archaeologist, a decision can be made as to whether or not additional archaeological assessment work may be required.
