WaterScape is a collaborative effort of CELA, OEN, and OHI, in cooperation with the local partners listed above. The goals for the community discussions are:

  • To educate and engage interested individuals and organizations about Ontario’s water protection policies, particularly in response to the government’s current proposal: Protecting Water for Future Generations: Growing the Greenbelt in the Outer Ring; and,
  • To listen to the community, whose observations will inform a joint submission which meeting participants and others will be invited to endorse. 


Issues to be addressed at the community discussions include:

  • Are the increased measures in the Greenbelt adequate to the need to protect water there? 
  • Are there other areas of the province where increased protection for water should be applied? and,
  • Is the Province doing enough to protect water?


A template agenda can be seen at http://ontarioheadwaters.ca/agenda/. For more information please contact Andrew McCammon of the OHI at 416 231 9484 or via email at andrew(@) ontarioheadwaters.ca
