The Province introduced the More Homes Built Faster Act, released October 25, that proposes changes to the Conservation Authorities Act.
While we understand steps are required to address housing needs in communities across the province, the proposed changes limit the way conservation authorities can work with their municipal partners to plan safe development while maintaining the benefits of nature in our communities.
Many organizations are sharing their concerns of the significant proposed changes to conservation and planning legislation in Bill 23. Review their statements on this legislation and ways to express your concerns.
