Conservation Authorities undertake a broad range of programs, including: flood control; floodplain management; wetland protection; erosion control; reforestation; conservation lands; and conservation education.
The Authority is responsible for the administration of Ontario Regulation 180/06 which regulates development in areas where the control of flooding, erosion, pollution or the conservation of land may be affected by development.
