About Us

The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) is a local watershed management organization, incorporated under the Conservation Authorities Act (1946).

Since 1951, we have been dedicated to conserving, restoring and managing the Lake Simcoe watershed​.

Our jurisdiction, which began in the East Holland River with five municipalities, has grown to include the entire Lak​e Simcoe watershed with the exception of the City of Orillia and the Upper Talbot River subwatershed.

We are governed by an 18-member Board of Directors, appointed within a four-year cycle by its 9 member municipalities. Each year, the Board of Directors elects a Chair and Vice Chair from among its 18 members.


Healthy lake, healthy land, healthy life... for generations to come.


We collaborate to protect and restore the Lake Simcoe watershed with innovative research, policy and action.


Optimism. We are confident that the work we do is having a positive impact now and for the future.

Inclusivity. We value and respect the importance of a diversity of perspectives, knowledge and experience.​

Innovation. We encourage and pursue advancements in science, technology, education and communications because these are integral to success. ​

Integrity. We are consistent and honest; we use fair and equitable principles as part of our decision making. ​

Accountability. We take ownership for our actions and we measure our success so that we know if we're doing the right things the right way.
