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 protects farmland and natural areas like forests and wetlands from urban sprawl. It ensures that nature isn’t a long drive away, and protects the sources of drinking water for millions of GTA residents. And it ensures that we in the Greater Golden Horseshoe have access to fresh, local food.
