Development is the biggest growing threat to Lake Simcoe. Learn how development affects the lake, and what the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan does to buffer those impacts. Discover how Lake Simcoe, and the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority in particular, is a leader in developing cutting edge development and stormwater management policies that reduce impacts from development.

Since COVID-19 began, the province of Ontario has been handing out Minister’s Zoning Orders (MZOs) to fast track development, bypassing democratic and environmentally responsible planning and policy. And earlier this month, the province announced sweeping changes to the Conservation Authorities Act that puts the future of natural areas and essential wetlands in Southern Ontario at risk.
Empower yourself to take action by learning about the key changes to Conservation Authorities proposed by the province, and the ins and outs of MZOs.
