Description:

Conservation Ontario is made up of a network of 36 Conservation Authorities, community-based watershed management agencies dedicated to conserving, restoring and managing Ontario's natural resources on a watershed basis. The office of Conservation Ontario is located in Newmarket, Ontario and supports the network of Conservation Authorities. A total of 31 Conservation Authorities operate in southern Ontario and an additional five Conservation Authorities deliver programs and services in northern Ontario. 90% of Ontario's 12 million population lives in a watershed managed by a Conservation Authority. Conservation Authorities are nonprofit organizations, each with their own Board of Directors with members appointed by local municipalities. The majority of Board representatives are elected municipal officials. Conservation Authorities are legislated by the Conservation Authorities Act (1946). Conservation Authorities are mandated to ensure the conservation, restoration and responsible management of Ontario's water, land and natural habitats through programs that balance human, environmental and economic needs.
