Ecojustice, an environmental law organization, is working with Ducks Unlimted, Ontario Nature and Earthroots to assess the effectiveness of the Greenbelt Plan in protecting wetlands, which are rapidly disappearing in near urban environments across the province.A series of interviews and case studies on various planning decisions will shed light on how the current policy framework is or is not adequately protecting wetlands in the Greenbelt.The assessment will enhance our understanding of the complexities and key policy issues related to Greenbelt wetlands, increase public awareness and influence policy reform, to ensure the broader vision of ecological integrity is met in the Greenbelt’s Protected Countryside, Oak Ridges Moraine and the Niagara Escarpment.
