In 2016 we joined the York Region Municipal Diversity and Inclusion Group.
Together, this group of York Region businesses and community organizations created a charter solidifying the shared vision of a welcoming and inclusive community—one where diversity is celebrated and where everyone can develop to their full potential, participate freely in society and live with respect, dignity and freedom from discrimination.
Grounded in the belief that we are stronger together, LSRCA’s Chief Administrative Officer, Mike Walters and LSRCA Board of Directors Chair, Aurora Mayor Geoffrey Dawe, proudly endorsed LSRCA’s customized version of the charter on June 22, 2018. Our commitment is to increase employee involvement and engagement through more diverse and inclusive programs, create enhanced customer experiences and increase our business performance.
Cutting the Red Tape
The Town of Newmarket and LSRCA signed the first agreement of its kind in Ontario, transferring sole responsibility for review of stormwater features for Environmental Compliance Approvals to LSRCA. The modernized process eliminates duplication, provides a more integrated environmental assessment and will dramatically reduce wait times for new developments.
