Welcome! Interested In What We Do?

The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority (LRCA) is a community-based environmental agency, responsible for the delivery of programs and services that further the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources in the Lakehead Watershed. Conservation Authorities undertake a broad range of programs, including flood forecasting and warning; development regulations; floodplain management; wetland protection; erosion mitigation; Source Water Protection; conservation lands; stewardship; and conservation education.
The Authority is responsible for the administration of Ontario Regulation 180/06 which regulates development in areas where the control of flooding, erosion, pollution or the conservation of land may be affected by development.
