Bill 23 and Proposed Changes to Greenbelt: Bruce Trail Conservancy urges province to pause and consult

Bill 23, the proposed provincial More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022, aims to increase housing supply through major changes to planning and conservation legislation. The changes outlined in Bill 23 could result in permanent loss of connectivity of the Bruce Trail and the conservation corridor containing it. This is a serious concern for the Bruce Trail Conservancy and all those who enjoy the iconic 900 km Bruce Trail.








Bruce Trail Conservancy’s Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Statement 

The Bruce Trail Conservancy wishes to acknowledge and honour the lands of the Niagara Escarpment as the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples. In both spirit and partnership, we recognize and thank the Anishinaabek, Huron-Wendat, Tionontati, Attawandaron, Haudenosaunee, Métis, and all who provided stewardship of these lands over millennia. Recognition of the contributions of Indigenous peoples is consistent with our commitment to making the promise of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities. We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work, and play here and thank all those who have served and continue to serve as caretakers of this special place.
