For over 25 years, our unique Small – Medium Enterprise Collaborative brand has thrived to provide ecosystem goods and services on many landmark projects. This includes developing machine learning platforms and innovative web tools for net public benefit, health and wellness applications. We also strive to identify sustainable urban development solutions with a conservationist ethic. These incorporate evidence-based science; open source code and Internet-based data decision support systems; and, with adaptive (real-time) technologies that can address global climate change concerns (and opportunities).

Finally, for more than 15,000 years, Canada’s First Nations walked upon, and cared for the lands our head office calls home: namely, the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Ojibwe Nations, and many others who cared for their families and communities, the way we now seek to care for ours and operate our local & international business. Collingwood acknowledges the Lake Simcoe-Nottawasaga Treaty of 1818 and respects all Nation-to-Nation agreements that have formed relationships with the original inhabitants of Turtle Island. This includes the reality of our shared history, as well as past and current contributions of Indigenous People within our community. As a business, our employees and management team seek to continue empowering expressions of pride amongst all of the diverse stakeholders in our region. We also seek to do better, to continue to recognize, learn, and grow, in friendship and community, Nation-to-Nation.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

In March of 2013, Greenland International Consulting Ltd. completed a study for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to estimate nutrient loading in small catchment of about 177 square kilometers in the La Salle River watershed in southern Manitoba using the CANWET 4 model. Given uncertainties in some input data and model parameters, the preliminary results using the CANWET 4 model for baseline conditions of stream discharge, nutrient concentrations and loads were satisfactory in our project team as simulated values were within the range of observed values during the validation period.

This study suggests the CANWET 4 modeling approach could be used to predict changes to nutrient loads from changing land use scenarios in watersheds of this region.

County of Simcoe

The County of Simcoe is the upper tier government and planning authority for most of the South Georgian Bay – Lake Simcoe Source Water Protection Region. The County, in partnership with its member municipalities, other levels of government, floodplain management agencies and two (2) conservation authorities, also provides leadership through policy, and actively in the restoration and protection of the environmental health and quality of these watersheds. As you know, in order to comply with, and be environmentally proactive with respect to the Province of Ontario’s “Places to Grow” legislation, the County of Simcoe utilized innovative decision support tools such as Greenland’s CANWET™ model. In 2012, CANWET™ was also used by the County to prepare a “Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Visioning Strategy”. To this day, the information in the Strategy’s final report is used by local municipalities, development interests and other stakeholders as a background reference to help identify sustainable development solutions.
 
This letter confirms the County of Simcoe's commitment of support which includes initially facilitating the introduction of this landmark international collaboration with all 16 local municipalities, other governments (small and large) and other agencies that partner now with the County of Simcoe on land use planning; infrastructure renewal; and flooding risk/damage reduction initiatives.
 
As always, I look forward to our continued working relationship with you and your colleagues and the significant benefits these efforts will have for our residents and environment. The County of Simcoe appreciates your efforts towards developing information based decision making tools and we are confident that this project will prove beneficial in our collaborative goal to improve watershed health for all County residents.
