Permit Console:  

For those with a NOVA customer account, the Permit Console  is an option that is quite easy and simple to use once it is mastered.  It also ensures a better processing time for permits since the data is already entered in our systems.  If you are interested in using our Permit Console, please contact us at and we can provide you with a user name and password, as well as give you a quick training over the phone to get you started.   

- For inquiries, status checks, information requests, permit amendments, etc., we strongly suggest to our customers to use our Live Support feature on our website.  You can just click on the button and reach either one of the NOVA team members willing and available to answer all your questions.   You can also send us your request by e-mail to or by fax to 418.527.3999 .  One of our agents will get back to you in a timely manner.

Last but not least, we encourage you to send your permit orders to us as much in advance as possible prior to your desired effective date.  We do our very best to process your orders as quickly as we can but other elements can delay the issuance of permits such as, DOT issues, inclement weather conditions, etc. All the NOVA Team members are working really hard to make sure that our customer service remains excellent and we need the cooperation of our loyal customers to achieve our goals.
