New Volunteer Opportunity

If you are interested in getting involved in the larger issues that confront Southern Ontario, then you might be interested in this opportunity. A new provincial law called the Clean Water Act was enacted on July 3, 2007. One of the provisions of the act was to create a series of regions across the province. Each region is responsible for protection and monitoring of sources of water. In the Toronto area the new body is called the CTC Source Protection Region (this is an amalgam that includes watersheds from the Credit River east to Soper Creek in Clarington).

This new body is creating a new committee called the CTC Source Protection Committee. Members are being drawn from government bodies and Environmental NGOs but also from the general public.

If you are interested in applying please read the website PDF for details. Applications must be received by September 28, 2007.
