Public Consultation

In December 2020, changes to the Conservation Authorities Act resulted in the introduction of mandatory programs and services which are to be delivered by all Conservation Authorities.

The GRCA is seeking public input to gather valuable feedback.

Ontario Regulation 686/21 defines one of the mandatory programs as the “conservation and management of lands.” Further, Section 10 of the regulation requires all Conservation Authorities to prepare a Conservation Area Strategy, for all lands owned or controlled by their Authority, by December 31, 2024.

The GRCA has modified the name of the strategy to “Conservation Lands Strategy” to encompass all GRCA land holdings. The Conservation Lands Strategy will be used to guide the conservation and management of GRCA lands.

Consultation on the Draft Conservation Lands Strategy will occur from July 2 to August 12, 2024 and will include two Public Open Houses, one at the GRCA Administration Office and one at the Ganaraska Forest Centre (GFC).

The comment form will be open from July 2nd to August 12th, 2024.
