Cancelled: June 27 Information Session on Updated Wetland Regulations Mapping

On April 1, 2024, the Government of Ontario replaced individual conservation authority regulations with O. Reg. 41/24: Prohibited Activities, Exemptions and Permits. This update requires conservation authorities to regulate development activities inside and within 30 metres of all wetlands, as defined in the regulation.

Please be advised that the Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA), South Nation Conservation, and Rideau Valley Conservation Authority are pausing consultation on updated wetland mapping. We appreciate the feedback and comments we have received to date and support direction we received from the Ministry of Natural Resources giving us time to work on a local approach. 

Over the coming months, the conservation authorities will work with Ministry staff, municipalities and stakeholders to develop this local approach. Please note that this means that information sessions and one-on-one meetings with property owners will be paused and rescheduled at a later date. 

If you have any questions, please contact Phil Barnes, RRCA Team Lead, Watershed Management at or 613-938-3611 x 240.
