CTC Source Protection Committee

Call for Applications to Fill Committee Vacancy

The Credit Valley Source Protection Authority is seeking applications for a vacancy on the Credit Valley – Toronto and Region – Central Lake Ontario (CTC) Source Protection Committee. LEARN MORE & APPLY.

The CTC Source Protection Committee includes stakeholders from municipalities, businesses, and the general public from across the region. Under the Clean Water Act, 2006, the committee is responsible for development of the Source Protection Plan (SPP), which is aimed at keeping drinking water sources clean and encouraging wise water use.

The CTC Source Protection Committee was established in 2008 to guide the development of the Source Protection Plan. Committee members were selected for their sector expertise following a public nomination period. The committee oversaw the development of three essential documents:

  • Terms of Reference: This is the “work plan” for the process, assigning responsibility for the work needed to develop the Source Protection Plans. It includes a plan to consult with potentially affected property owners, to involve the public, and to resolve disputes.
  • Assessment Reports: The Assessment Reports are the scientific basis of the Source Protection Plan. They identify drinking water sources within the CTC region, and delineate the areas vulnerable to contamination or overuse near those sources. They also identify potential threats to both water quality and water quantity within each watershed.
  • Source Protection Plan: The Source Protection Plan sets out policies for reducing, eliminating or preventing significant threats to drinking water sources. The plan indicates who has responsibility for taking action, sets timelines, and determines how progress will be measured.

The CTC Source Protection Committee regularly holds meetings, which are open to the public. For more information, visit our Meetings page.
