Lake Ontario Evening: Following Toronto and Region’s Largest Waterfront Projects from East to West

This event is taking place via Zoom. After registration, you will be emailed a link to join the webinar.

The face of Toronto’s waterfront is transforming and providing huge benefits to visitors, residents, and the natural environment.

Many large-scale projects are currently underway to upgrade infrastructure, control erosion, and reduce elevated nutrient levels. Not only do these undertakings increase the functionality of the waterfront – they also provide habitat for aquatic and terrestrial species, create recreational opportunities, and impart a more aesthetic and enjoyable user experience.

Join us for this two-part Lake Ontario Evening as we highlight some of these large projects from East to West and showcase the incredible feats of engineering and design being implemented to help move Toronto closer to delisting as an Area of Concern.

This is Part Two of our series. At this Lake Ontario Evening, we will discuss projects in the western side of the Toronto and Region Area of Concern, including the Don Mouth Naturalization and Port Lands Flood Protection Project, Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area and various major maintenance projects.

The eastern projects were discussed at the Lake Ontario Evening on Thursday, February 23, 2023. A recording of the eastern projects presentation can be found on the Toronto and Region Remedial Action Plan (RAP) website.
