Credit Valley Conservation Lake Ontario Shoreline Strategy

Objectives:  - Protect, manage and restore water quantities and quality, coastal   geomorphology, terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem features and   functions.  - Integrate background information, studies and identify data gaps.  - Conduct field studies and data analysis to characterize existing   ecological features and functions.   - Identify limiting factors to a sustainable ecosystem and evaluate   restoration techniques and opportunities.  - Identify landscape and site level opportunities for restoration   and develop conceptual plans.  - Identify roles and responsibilities, policy gaps and   opportunities.   - Promote implementation plans and policies.   - Consider new water level regulations and climate change.  - Engage agencies, NGO's, other stakeholders, landowners and   public.  - Develop monitoring programs to guide redevelopment, restoration   activities and climate adaptation strategy.   - Integrate shoreline plans and policies with other Conservation   Authorities (HRCA, TRCA, SCOCA and CO).
