Board of Directors

To maintain and improve our watershed, the municipalities within our partnership appoint members to serve on the Conservation Authority's Board of Directors. The Board reviews conservation projects managed by the Conservation Authority and funded by a variety of partners (our municipalities, our school boards, our community and interest groups, the Province of Ontario and the federal government). The Board also reviews conservation area programming as well as planning and regulatory activities under The Conservation Authorities Act.
