Our most vulnerable species are on the chopping block.

Hello ,

Ontario’s Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) is misleading the public by claiming that its recently proposed amendments to the Endangered Species Act, 2007 (ESA) will “improve outcomes for species at risk.”

On the contrary, the changes put forward would improve outcomes only for developers and industry laggards who want to sweep aside protections for our most vulnerable plants and animals. 

The list of damaging changes is long and wide-ranging.

There’s more — much more — ensuring that the forests, wetlands, lakes and rivers that provide habitat for species at risk would be open for destruction.

Ontario Nature is working alongside our friends, supporters, partners and allies to oppose these changes. We hope you will stand with us.

You can make the strongest impact by contacting your MPP about these proposed amendments. Please phone, send a letter, or request a meeting with your representative and let them know that the people of Ontario are not okay with these proposed amendments. Your MPP needs to know that their constituents care and are paying attention. 

It’s also important to participate in the public consultation. The ministry's decision will profoundly affect the fate of species at risk and their habitats.

The deadline for comment through the Environmental Registry of Ontario (ERO) is May 18, 2019.
