Conservation Ontario’s submission to MNRF on “A Wetland Conservation Strategy for Ontario 2016-2030” (EBR# 012-7675). Conservation Ontario’s letter of comment identified three priority areas for improvement in the Strategy: 1) have one clear target to meet the mandate of “no net loss” of wetlands, 2) recognize Conservation Authorities as important partners in the implementation of this Strategy; including the regulatory role, and 3) be more specific about the purpose and goals of this Strategy. In particular, under 2), it was recommended that the “legislative/policy/guideline support and clarification for the Conservation Authorities Act (CAA)” be identified as a priority action in the Wetland Strategy.
