We Need Our Conservation Authorities

Conservation Authority Survey & Primer Report

In Winter 2020, WWF-Canada, Environmental Defence and Canadian Environmental Law Association partnered to develop a survey for researchers in Ontario to better understand the importance of conservation authority water monitoring data.

Following the survey,  Environmental Defence and CELA developed a primer report that explains the research survey and provides an overview of the key results from our survey, specifically around locally mandated programs and water monitoring data collected by conservation authorities. These programs include water monitoring (both quality and quantity), climate change adaptation like tree planting and other programs such as wetland restoration.
