Provincial Consultation on Conservation Authorities Act

Jul 21, 2015

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) has initiated a review of the Conservation Authorities Act.  A discussion paper (available here) has been prepared by MNRF and posted on the environmental registry (EBR Registry #012-4509) for comments until October 19, 2015.

The purpose of the discussion paper is to seek feedback on the following three areas:

1. Governance – the processes, structures, and accountability frameworks within the Act which direct conservation authority decision-making and operations;

2. Funding Mechanisms – the mechanisms put in place by the Act to fund conservation authorities; and

3. Roles and Responsibilities – the roles and associated responsibilities that the Act enables conservation authorities to undertake.
