HNC has a long tradition of advocacy. Now more than ever, each one of us needs to be the voice for our wildlife and natural areas that the HNC has been since 1919. We need to share our concerns with others who love nature and with our elected officials.

Bill 23, the More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022

From Ontario Nature: “With Bill 23 – the More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022 – nature, farmland and democracy are under attack. This omnibus bill brings sweeping changes to the province’s natural heritage and land use planning legislation and policy. It amends many laws (e.g., the Planning Act, the Conservation Authorities Act), removing and weakening environmental protections and excluding the public from meaningful involvement in land use planning and decisions affecting their communities.”
