With more than 60 years of experience, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario, created to safeguard and enhance the health and well-being of watershed communities through the protection and restoration of the natural environment and the ecological services the environment provides.
TRCA’s vast jurisdiction comprises the following nine watersheds, plus their collective Lake Ontario waterfront shorelines:
More than 3.5 million people live within TRCA-managed watersheds, and many others work in and visit destinations across our jurisdiction. The population within TRCA’s jurisdiction is expected to grow significantly in the years to come.
With their colours and songs come much-needed release and relief. Birds are everywhere and connect you to nature, your family and a community. During May, 50 million birds will dazzle the city with colour, music and hope. We will bring your friends and family online events, webinars and online courses. Events and activities are mostly free and open to all. Register soon!
