Agricultural Sector Vacancy - Raisin-South Nation Source Protection Committee

September 8, 2023

A Source Protection Committee was established in accordance with the Clean Water Act, 2006 and has developed a locally driven, science-based Source Protection Plan that aims to reduce the risk of contamination and overuse of our drinking water sources.

The role of the Committee is to guide the review and updates of the Source Protection Plan using a science-based approach and to ensure that all relevant information is considered. The Source Protection Committee is comprised of 15 members, 4 liaisons, and the Chair.

The Committee reserves 3 seats specifically for the agriculture sector, and due to the unfortunate passing of one of the Committee members earlier this year, there is a vacancy for an agricultural representative to be filled.

At this stage of the recruiting process, the Committee is reaching out to Agricultural Organizations to share this message with their membership and for recommendations of qualified, experienced and interested candidates that live and work in the agriculture community to fill the position.

A job description, eligibility requirements, application forms and other information about the Committee and the Drinking Water Source Protection Program are available at

Eligible candidates who reside within the Raisin-South Nation Source Protection Region and who are interested in representing the Agricultural Sector, having an extensive agricultural background, knowledge of local jurisdictions and drinking water issues are invited to submit their application by September 29th, 2023 to:
