An Opportunity to Comment on New Conservation Authority Regulations

You may recall that the Ontario Landowners Association worked with the provincial government to improve the Conservation Authorities Act and return them to their original mandate.

The next step is to define new regulations.

Posted on May 13, comments are open until June 21 for the Regulatory proposals (Phase 1) under the Conservation Authorities Act.

The Ontario government is proposing new regulations to focus conservation authorities on their core mandate by prescribing mandatory programs and services they must provide, give municipalities greater control over what conservation authority programs and services they will fund, consolidate “Conservation Areas” regulations and to require community advisory boards.

Please visit Regulatory proposals (Phase 1) under the Conservation Authorities Act | Environmental Registry of Ontario for more information.
