Join the Greenbelt Review Discussion

March 20, 2015 | Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation

For 10 years now, Ontario’s Greenbelt has provided the solution for clean water, healthy local food, and a thriving economy with good jobs. At almost 2 million acres, it’s the world’s largest permanently protected greenbelt, and you can help make sure it stays that way.

From March 25th to April 28th, the province of Ontario is conducting a Coordinated Review of the Greenbelt Plan, Niagara Escarpment Plan, Oak Ridges Moraine Plan, and the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
