Actions You Can Take

Sign The Petition For Thriving Communities

Simcoe County is currently in the midst of its Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR) process. This process determines how our communities will be developed in the next 30 to 50 years. Developers want to build sprawl. With the converging crises of climate change, habitat loss, inequality and lack of housing affordability, infrastructure debt, skyrocketing food prices, among others, we need to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Protect Lake Simcoe

Despite commitments to improve the health of Lake Simcoe this government is poised to make decisions that would set us back decades and risk losing the lake's billion dollar ecosystem services.

Grow The Greenbelt

Protecting our natural heritage while building communities responsibly is smart and ensures a healthy and sustainable future for Ontario.

Support A Just Recovery From COVID-19

Crisis is also an opportunity. We can build back better. But, unless we stand together, politicians will support the broken status quo.

Help Us Fight MZOs

Send a message to your council and MPP, and report MZOs in your community.

Our Mission

We believe a healthy environment is critical to Simcoe County’s future.

Farmland, water and natural heritage are key components of a healthy environment and thriving economy, and need better protection.

We are calling for the expansion of the Greenbelt to Simcoe County, so that current and future generations can benefit from clean water, local food and green spaces.

Community supported, advocacy for a safe and secure future.

Governments have failed to act to protect our communities and the futures of our children and grandchildren, and they continue to treat our environment as if it’s incidental to life, rather than a foundation for it.

We need strong community organizations to fight for our future, now more than ever.

Please consider donating to support our work. It’s people like you who make us possible.
