CELA partnered with WCS Canada, Ontario Nature and Environmental Defence on a submission regarding the proposed phase 1 regulations for implementing changes to the Conservation Authorities Act (ERO #019-2986). We asked that any proposed regulations not hamper nor limit the ability of Conservation Authorities (CAs) to develop and deliver watershed-wide programs and services aimed at achieving a healthy and climate resilient Ontario. CAs should be able to determine programs and services with local partners, based on community needs and priorities, rather than creating a rigid division between mandatory versus non-mandatory programs and services.
