Growing the Greenbelt into Toronto's Ravines

Toronto’s ravines are places for us to connect with nature and enjoy a wide variety of recreational activities. But they are also precious natural spaces that help clean the air and water and provide important habitat for plants and animals.

The rivers that run through them are also important corridors that connect Lake Ontario to our world famous Greenbelt, which protects environmentally sensitive areas and productive farmlands from urban development and sprawl.

TEA has been calling on Toronto City Council to grow the Greenbelt into Toronto by formally connecting Toronto’s ravines and rivers to it. This will insure a healthier Greenbelt and healthier ravines.
