A new waterfront conservation area for the Mississauga Waterfront

Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area (JTLCA) will transform Mississauga’s Lakeview waterfront into a hub for passive waterfront recreation, a hotspot for wildlife migration and a green oasis in the heart of a growing city.

Credit Valley Conservation, in partnership with the Region of Peel and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) – and supported by Cities of Mississauga and Toronto – are working together to transform a degraded section of the Mississauga shoreline into a thriving 26-hectare waterfront conservation area that will connect people and wildlife back to nature.

The creation of the new JTLCA is the culmination of over a decade of planning and construction that has included an environmental assessment, engineering and design, permitting, landform building, habitat restoration and public realm installation. Learn more about the JTLCA conservation area building process.

We’re excited to welcome the public to experience the new conservation area in late 2025.  

Managing Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area

We’re developing the first property management plan for the Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area. The JTLCA Management Plan will establish objectives and priority actions for the conservation area and will guide how we manage and operate it. It will also outline how the community will experience the conservation area, including what recreational opportunities will be available.

The inaugural management plan for JTLCA will support a smooth transition from construction to operations, as we prepare to open the conservation area for public enjoyment.
