Map of Greenbelt Hot Spots

Ontario’s world renowned Greenbelt was designed to protect farmland and natural areas from urban sprawl. But across the Greenbelt, landowners and some municipalities want to remove land from the Greenbelt, largely just to build more sprawl or far flung corporate office parks, rather than concentrating growth in already urbanized areas, which would save municipalities and residents money. The province is reviewing the feasibility of building a mega-highway, the GTA West (highway 413) that would cut through the Greenbelt.
