Ontario Greenbelt Alliance
Did you know that Ontario has 1.8 million acres of protected farmland and green spaces surrounding the Greater Golden Horseshoe? It’s called the Greenbelt and it gives us clean water, healthy local food and $2.6 billion per year in ecological services.
We are the Ontario Greenbelt Alliance, the leading proponent of this world-renowned Greenbelt, and it is our vision to grow and strengthen the Greenbelt landscape so that Southern Ontario’s communities are planned in the smartest and most sustainable way possible.
The Greenbelt is a living, growing system for sustaining a healthy environment and vibrant communities.
Ontario’s Greenbelt aims to protect sensitive natural areas and farmland. But Ontario is planning a highway that would cut through the greenbelt and damage both farmland and green space.
The proposed highway, GTA West, would pave over 2,000 acres of prime farmland in the Greenbelt.
There are few natural spaces left in the city. Rouge Park is the largest natural park in Toronto. It’s the perfect place for a nature walk or to explore by kayak.
