Natural Assets Business Case
Credit Valley Conservation Foundation
$35,000 (over 18 months)
Grant Stream: Resilient Greenbelt
Date Approved: September 26, 2017
The Greenbelt and adjacent natural systems will be inventoried in Peel Region and the value of stormwater services assessed and integrated into the Region’s municipal asset management program and financial processes. Business cases will establish comparable economic costs and returns. The project will change Peel Region’s overall asset management strategy, encourage greater investment in the restoration of wetlands and other green infrastructure in the Credit River Valley watershed and prioritize natural asset restoration projects. Project partners include Peel Region and lower-tier municipal governments, TRCA and FCM.
