The Nickel District Conservation Authority was established in June, 1973. It is an amalgamation and expansion of two former Conservation Authorities, the Junction Creek Conservation Authority and the Whitson Valley Conservation Authority. It has jurisdiction over an area of 7,576 square kilometers. The watershed area is rectangular in shape. The north-south axis averages 124 kilometers and the east-west width is 61 kilometers. The watershed area includes: the Vermilion River and all its tributaries, the part of the Wanapitei River lying upstream of its confluence with Elbow Creek to the most northerly portion, and a portion of the watershed of the Whitefish River upstream of the outlet of Round Lake. The Conservation Authority works in partnership with the Province of Ontario, through the Ministry of Natural Resources; and its member municipality, namely the City of Greater Sudbury. The Conservation Authority is under the administration of a 9 member General Board. All members are appointed by the City of Greater Sudbury for four year terms. The Authority receives funding from a number of sources. The funding available varies according to the type of program and project.
