A factsheet summarizing CVC study that assessed the value of the ecosystem services provided by natural capital (i.e. natural assets) in the Credit River Watershed.
Consultant report documenting a review of relevant natural heritage system planning policies within and beyond Ontario. This report supported Phase 4 of CVC’s Natural Heritage System Strategy and provided background information for the development of the example natural heritage system implementation policies.
This report outlines CVC’s method to assign local conservation status ranks (L-ranks) and identify local species of conservation concern at a watershed scale, and demonstrate its application using the fishes of the Credit River Watershed as a test case.
The purpose of this document is to identify guidance needs for establishing a common approach to setting watershed and stormwater levels of service and assessing associated risk in light of climate change to inform (sub)watershed planning, municipal master planning and asset management planning in accordance with provincial and municipal requirements.
This study evaluates the increase in the value of properties proximal to natural features (i.e.,
ravines and upland green space).
The study uses a survey of residents in the Credit River Watershed to determine exactly how natural areas contribute to their wellbeing. These include the role of natural areas in the provision of ecosystem services which maintain or enhance human well-being, and in the provision of physical, mental, and social wellbeing.
A factsheet summarizing a survey of residents in the Credit River watershed to determine exactly how natural areas contribute to their wellbeing.
A factsheet on the value the benefits of groundwater for local residents and businesses in the upper Credit River Watershed.
A factsheet summarizing a study by Credit Valley Conservation to estimate the economic value of the Credit River’s recreational fishery, and specifically, angling activity.
Appendix A of “Towards a Natural Heritage System for the Credit River Watershed: Final Technical Report”. Includes maps associated with the characterization and assessment of existing conditions in the Credit River Watershed for Phase 1 and 2 of the Natural Heritage System Strategy.
Appendix B of “Towards a Natural Heritage System for the Credit River Watershed: Final Technical Report”. Outlines the GIS methods used to characterize the Credit River Watershed for Phase 1 and 2 of the Natural Heritage System Strategy.
Report documenting Phase 1 and 2 of the Natural Heritage System Strategy for the Credit River Watershed. This work includes the characterization and assessment of existing conditions in the watershed through a Landscape Scale Analysis.
Summary version of “Towards a Natural Heritage System for the Credit River Watershed: Final Technical Report”.
This report (phase 1) details valuing wetland ecosystem services in the Credit River Watershed. This report summarizes the literature about: (i) identifying/ quantifying wetland ecosystem services; (ii) assessing the impact that human activities/actions have on these services; and (iii) estimating the economic value provided by these services.
This report (phase 2) estimates the value of retaining and restoring wetland services in the Credit River Watershed using the Contingent Valuation Method (CVM).
This document is a summary of the 2017 vulnerability assessment report of the effects of climate change on water systems within the Region of Peel.
The wetland hydrological assessment method is an approach to characterize the hydrological regime in wetlands, for the purpose of monitoring hydrological and ecological change and guiding management and mitigation against impacts.
