Trent-severn waterway draft management plan consultations

Trent-Severn Waterway

June 9, 2022

Parks Canada is currently seeking feedback on a new Draft Management Plan for the Trent-Severn Waterway and Peterborough Lift Lock National Historic Sites. Your input is important for a shared vision of the next 10 years.

From April 4 – June 30, we’re asking the public to read our Draft Management Plan and share their feedback.

The management plan is a strategic guide for future management of a national historic site. It is required by legislation, guided by Indigenous and public consultation, approved by the Minister responsible for Parks Canada, and tabled in Parliament.

Management plans are based on a long-term vision, with clear direction for a 10-year period, including measurable objectives and targets to achieve results. Parks Canada’s management plan guides management decisions and actions at a heritage place, and serves as a key public accountability document for that place.

More details on the management planning process can be found at the following link: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/lhn-nhs/on/trentsevern/info/plan/2022-plan-consultation

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
