Protecting Biodiversity in Ontario: the Environmental Commissioner’s Perspective
Sunday, January 28, 2018, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Howard Park Tennis Club, 430 Parkside Drive, Toronto, ON

Speaker: Ellen Schwartzel; Deputy Commissioner, Environmental Commissioner of Ontario

Ellen will share how Ontarians can use the Environmental Bill of Rights to strengthen environmental laws and policies, including protecting natural heritage. Biodiversity highlights from the Commissioner’s recently released report –- especially the province’s track record on species at risk and protected areas –- will also feature in her talk.

This is an opportunity to discuss issues and strategies for protecting nature in both urban and rural areas.

Note: The Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO) is an independent officer of the Legislature who reports on government progress on climate change, energy and other environmental issues. The ECO is the province’s environmental watchdog and champion of Ontarians’ environmental rights.
