  • Sponsors: Riepma, Hamilton

  • Support Federal funding for a Lake Simcoe Restoration Fund that represents a significant percentage of the overall Freshwater Action Plan Fund, with funding in excess of previous commitments, beginning in the 2022 budget

  • Use this funding to undertake:

  • shoreline mitigation, stream restoration and stormwater quality management (including in the tributaries of Sophia Creek, Kidd's Creek, Bunkers Creek, Dyments Creek, Hotchkiss Creek, Whiskey Creek, Lovers Creek, and Hewitts Creek)

  • projects to ameliorate contaminated sites in the watersheds

  • upgrades to help retrofit municipal infrastructure such as wastewater treatment and stormwater management facilities to decrease total current discharges from existing facilities

  • plant 250,000 trees in the watershed, purchase and conserve more forests and wetlands under the auspices of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (working towards the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan goal of 40% of the watershed area being protected natural land)
