12 years after its creation, Ontario’s Greenbelt is growing to include urban river valleys across the region. In Toronto, these include the Don, Humber, and Rouge Rivers, and Morningside and Etobicoke Creeks. These green-blue corridors provide critical connections for water and wildlife, and between urban and rural residents.
They will become increasingly important places as our region attempts to cope with the impacts of climate change while accommodating an estimated 2.8 million new residents by 2031. Join the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation as we try to unravel what all this means for Toronto and the Greater Golden Horseshoe region.
