Ontario Greenbelt Alliance

Did you know that Ontario has 2 million acres of protected farmland and green spaces surrounding the Greater Golden Horseshoe? It’s called the Greenbelt and it gives us clean water, healthy local food and $2.6 billion per year in ecological services.

We are the Ontario Greenbelt Alliance, the leading supporter of this world-renowned Greenbelt, and it is our vision to grow and strengthen the Greenbelt landscape to enable a future with clean water resources, thriving farms, local food sources, habitat for wildlife and trails for nature lovers. Ontario’s Greenbelt stops sprawl. It defines where not to grow and where to grow, providing certainty to plan communities in the smartest and most sustainable way possible.

The Greenbelt is a living, growing system for sustaining a healthy environment and vibrant communities.
