A thriving Greenbelt. A thriving Ontario.

The Greenbelt Foundation stewards Ontario's Greenbelt, two million acres of protected land that provide clean air, fresh water, climate resilience, and a reliable local food source to help Ontario thrive. We are the only charitable organization solely dedicated to the health and prosperity of Ontario's Greenbelt.
