Farmland Protecting through Greenbelt Expansion

The project enables Ontario Farmland Trust (OTF) to develop a technical submission for the Greenbelt expansion consultations that links water systems to the long-term health and viability of agriculture in the Outer Ring. A clearer picture of this relationship, along with potential stressors, will be used to engage farmers in discussions on Greenbelt expansion and enable OTF to work with experts to develop policy recommendations for their submission, including the addition of lands beyond the study areas. Funding will also provide OTF with the capacity to actively support Greenbelt expansion by attending and speaking at community meetings, directly engaging farmers and farm associations, attending the provincial Open Houses, and meeting with the government.
