Mississauga Councillor Pat Mullin was re-elected chair of Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) at the Authority’s 2014 inaugural meeting in January. The appointment marks Mullin’s tenth term as chair of the CVC Board of Directors. The board consists of 12 members represented by Councillors from the municipalities within the CreditValley watershed.
“I want to thank members of the board for their continued support,” said Chair Mullin. “This past year has brought many challenges. The extreme weather in 2013 helped highlight the important work of our partners, volunteers and staff at CVC. Together, we continue to play a key role in managing environmental issues as collectively we work to adapt to changing climate conditions.
“This year marks CVC’s 60th anniversary. It’s an important milestone and one of which we are very proud. Our work over the past 60 years has been built on strong partnerships and strong leadership. We look forward this year to celebrating our heritage and continuing our work to protect natural resources in the watershed now and for the future.”
Halton Hills Councillor Joan Robson was re-elected for her third term as first vice-chair. At the approval of the board, the election for second vice-chair was held over to the February 14th Board meeting. Township of Amaranth Mayor Don MacIver was elected as second vice-chair.
CVC is accountable through its board of directors to the municipalities and residents in the Credit River watershed. These members approve CVC programs and policies, and set its budget.
Conservation Authorities are a provincial/municipal partnership. CVC was established by an act of the province in 1954 with a mandate to protect all natural resources other than minerals in the area drained by the CreditRiver. We have been working for 60 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the CreditRiver watershed for present and future generations. CVC is a member of Conservation Ontario.
