RVCA is one of Ontario’s 36 Conservation Authorities. We are a community based environmental protection agency that works closely with municipal, provincial and federal government partners, landowners and community groups to maintain and improve the natural resources in the Rideau watershed. The RVCA promotes an integrated watershed approach — one that balances human, environmental and economic needs. Our success is based on local initiative, watershed jurisdiction and partnerships in resource management. We aim to improve water quality, protect water supplies, reduce flood risk, improve watershed habitats erosion hazard and increase conservation lands.
