Greenbelt

Greenbelting Greenbelt

Toronto is surrounded by agricultural lands, rivers, lakes, trails, ski hills, historical cultural sites, and world-renowned forests and parks, which are protected for all in the Ontario Greenbelt.

But the Greenbelt is more than a beautiful tourist destination. It’s the source of Toronto’s drinking water, its forests help clean Toronto’s air, and its prime farmland provides us with fresh food.

The Toronto Environmental Alliance is working to help Torontonians protect the Greenbelt from urban sprawl and development by raising wider awareness of the Greenbelt’s many resources, building better relationships with its communities, and promoting stronger support for local economies. TEA works on:

TEA has been helping Ontario's world-famous Greenbelt since 2007:

  • We’ve helped promote local food, including food used in Chinese, South Asian, African-Caribbean and Middle-Eastern cooking.
  • In 2008, we convinced Toronto City Council to adopt a local food procurement policy to make sure city run daycares and seniors homes get access to fresh, tasty local food.
