The Coalition of Ontario Watershed Guardians

The Coalition of Ontario Watershed Guardians works to protect and improve Ontario’s watershed security – water for people and for nature – to help safeguard regional ecological integrity, social wellbeing, and economic vitality.

The Coalition will act as a platform to deliver two types of campaigns: provincial campaigns to address the largest scale of watershed security and regional efforts to increase public awareness while suggesting improvements to watershed security at the local level.

Individuals and organizations can become a Watershed Guardian by sending an e-mail as described at Become a Guardian. Any Watershed Guardian can suggest a campaign; both individuals and organizations will be added to the OHI e-mail list and will be invited to support campaigns run by the Coalition, while organizations will also be able to join Campaign Roundtables to define and deliver any campaigns being developed. 

Campaigns may take the form of submissions, publications, petitions, and/or other aspects of community engagement, while no Guardian will be obligated to participate in any individual campaign.
