In 2017, the Greenbelt protection extended to 21 major urban river valleys and 7 coastal wetlands across the Greater Golden Horseshoe!

River valleys connect the suburban and rural lands of the Greenbelt to Lake Ontario, and provide our communities with greenspace to explore, clean and filter our water and air, reduce our flood risks, and provide a home to wildlife. Protecting the urban river valleys is the first step to ensure these system remain healthy for generations to come.
