The Essex Region Conservation Authority was established in 1973 to manage the natural resources of the Essex Region in partnership with our member municipalities and the Province of Ontario. Our nine member municipalities include the City of Windsor, County of Essex and the Township of Pelee Island.
Like all of Ontario's 36 Conservation Authorities, we are empowered through provincial legislation to further the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources other than gas, oil, coal and minerals.
By the year 2020, to achieve a sustainable, balanced environment with healthy watersheds, highlighted by clean creeks and rivers, thriving natural areas and productive agricultural lands.
ERCA's approach to managing natural resources on a watershed basis, upstream, downstream, in urban and rural areas is the way to achieve our goal.
