The Ford Government has announced changes to Ontario's Endangered Species Act & these changes will only put endangered species at greater risk! Join us for a one hour workshop to learn everything you need to know about the proposed changes and how to prepare written comments to submit to the province through the Environmental Registry of Ontario.
On May 7th, 2019, we held two workshops and have provided the links to all our resources (note: a BIG thank you to Ontario Nature for their resources. We could not have pulled this together without them.
