Waterloo Region needs the Greenbelt.

The Province of Ontario has committed to growing the Greenbelt, and after years of being left out, this is Waterloo Region’s chance to finally receive the protections other communities have for their important agricultural and environmentally sensitive lands.

You can use our friendly form below to tell our provincial and regional representatives that you want to bring the Greenbelt to Waterloo Region.

Only have a minute? Just write a quick sentence or two to say that you want Waterloo Region included in the province’s Greenbelt. This simple statement goes a long way to showing local support for this important initiative, and is much more effective than signing a petition or sending a form letter.

Want to say more? Consider personalizing your comments, and also saying a bit about the importance of:

  • Protecting our crucial supply of groundwater
  • Protecting farming and supporting farmers and the important work they do
  • Preserving our most beautiful and unique natural areas for future generations
  • Supporting local efforts to create more liveable communities by growing up instead of out
  • Making sure the land we’re already protecting with local rules will continue to be protected in the future
