Some of their conservation strategies are listed below:

  • Ensure that Ontario’s rivers, lakes and streams are properly safeguarded, managed and restored;
  • Protect, manage and restore Ontario’s woodlands, wetlands and natural habitat;
  • Develop and maintain programs that will protect life and property from natural hazards such as flooding and erosion;
  • Provide opportunities for the public to enjoy/ learn from and respect Ontario’s natural environment.

Conservation Authorities are nonprofit organizations, each include their own Board of Directors whose members have been appointed by local municipalities.  There are over 90% of Ontario’s municipalities that are currently managed by a conservation authority.
