The Foundation funds, researches, supports, and publishes several reports each year to better guide our activities as a grant-making organization and to work toward a more complete understanding of Ontario’s Greenbelt.

Like the Greenbelt itself, our research is multifaceted and includes reports on the Greenbelt’s economic impact, the challenges and benefits of agriculture in the Greenbelt, greenbelts as models for land protection across the globe, and the environmental benefits of the Greenbelt’s wetlands.
