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