To commemorate the United Nations World Water Day on March 22, Credit Valley Conservation, in association with its Presenting Partners, debuts Morphology 2019 at the Small Arms Inspection Building, March 22-24, 2019. The photographic exhibition depicts an emerging new landscape on the shoreline of Lake Ontario.
The 26-hectare conservation development, now known as the Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area, is rapidly evolving. Through the lens of photographers and filmed content, the public is invited on March 23 and 24 to see the evolution of Canada’s largest construction project of its kind.
On March 22, media is invited to report from the premier presentation – an invitation-only event that will include guest speakers Edward Roussel, Chief Innovation Officer at Dow Jones, Mark Peck, Manager, Schad Gallery of Biodiversity at the Royal Ontario Museum and Cathie Jamieson of Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
Morphology was the inspiration of former Mississauga Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey and was first launched on January 14, 2018, the day before the Councillor’s untimely passing. Morphology was born from a vision championed by Tovey and community members during early construction of the conservation area. The new conservation area lies adjacent to Mississauga’s Lakeview Village development, Canada’s next generation waterfront community that will connect business, education, culture, residences and recreation along the waterfront.
When completed, the shared community dream of restoring public access to the entire Lakeview area will be fulfilled after more than a century of military and industrial use. As Councillor Tovey often repeated, “It’s time to bring the lake to Lakeview.”
Media is welcome to register to ensure building capacity is not exceeded.

March 23: Public Viewing – noon – 9 p.m. (free admission)
