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.
From Peterborough to Barrie, Toronto, St. Catharines and Waterloo, hundreds of people are participating in the provincial review of the Greenbelt, Oak Ridges Moraine, Niagara Escarpment Plan and Growth Plan.
Ontario’s Greenbelt is helping our cities grow in smarter, better ways. It isn’t driving up housing prices, despite what some in the development industry would have you believe.
