Media Coverage on Bill 229 & Conservation Authorities

The request to remove the proposed changes to the Conservation Authorities Act and Planning Act has received overwhelming support from organizations and citizens throughout Ontario.

NVCA believes that the changes would reduce the effectiveness of conservation authorities to protect the na​tural environment as well as public health and safety .

Thank you to members of the media for their dedication to ensuring that our communities are well aware of the potential impacts that Bill 229 will have on conservation authorities across Ontario.
