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.

Client Testimonials

Corporation of the Town of Collingwood (Canada)

On behalf of Council and the residents of Collingwood, I want to thank you for generously giving your time, expertise and experience to our community to assist Town staff in addressing the water capacity issues at the Raymond A. Barker Water Treatment Plant (WTP).

Since becoming aware of the capacity issues this spring and then implementing an Interim Control By-Law, this issue has been the top priority of Council. Your input and contribution on proactive measures to mitigate the summer/winter capacity differential and to increase the WTP capacity pending the completion of the expansion have been of great benefit to Council and to staff. As a result of your input, Council directed staff to include the option of UV Disinfection retrofit to the existing WTP as part of the expansion design RFP process and we are optimistic this will be done.

Thank you for your personal and professional commitment to our community, it is impactful and very much appreciated by myself and my Council colleagues.

Yours very truly,

Bruan Saunderson

University of Guelph

The reappearance of excessive nutrient loading in Lake Erie and the subsequent algae blooms is an extremely complex issue and is quite different in nature than the previous phosphorous loadings in the 1970s. Unlike the issue in the 1970s, there are far more sources adding nutrients to the late and these sources are diverse in nature ranging from rural to urban. In order to understand the nutrient loading, both in the temporal and spatial domains, more complex analytic and predictive tools are required in order to help policy make sound, science based, and defendable solutions.

The University of Guelph is uniquely positioned to help address the issues around Lake Erie with long standing core strengths in both the agricultural sector and the environmental field. In conjunction with our partner, Greenland Consulting Engineers, and their watershed evaluation tool (CANWETTM), we believe that we have the engineering and technology to extrapolate CANWETTM from the watershed level up to the lake basin level and provide decision-making support for the entire Lake Erie basin.

Muskoka Watershed Council

The Muskoka Watershed Council’s mission is to champion watershed health in those watersheds that flow into and through the District Municipality of Muskoka. There is no conservation authority in Muskoka, instead the Council is a volunteer-based organization supported by the District of Muskoka, local consulting firms, and local Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change offices.

The Muskoka Watershed Council is currently undertaking a project to understand the potential impact of climate change in Muskoka to the year 2050. In working with our municipal partners, decision support tools such as Greenland’s new CANWET-5 model could be useful in informing our watershed management planning decisions in relation to policy development, stewardship priorities and education and communication programs.
