Transition Plans and Agreements

In 2019/2020 the province amended the Conservation Authorities Act. The changes direct Conservation Authorities to focus and deliver on their mandates to:

  • Protect people and property from flooding and other natural hazards.
  • Conserve natural resources.

In October 2021, the province released new regulations to provide detailed direction for putting amendments in place.

Ontario Regulation 686/21 prescribes the required or mandatory programs and services Conservation Authorities provide.

Ontario Regulation 687/21, requires each Conservation Authority to have a Transition Plan that outlines the steps for:

  • Developing an inventory of programs and services.
  • Entering into agreements with participating municipalities to fund non-mandatory programs and services through municipal levy.
  • Establishes the transition period to enter into those agreements.

Otonabee Conservation has developed materials to meet the regulatory requirements and to keep residents informed of our progress:
