Grand River Conservation Authority


The Grand River is a Canadian Heritage River, flowing 300 kilometres through southwestern Ontario from the highlands of Dufferin County to Port Maitland on Lake Erie. The river serves as a source of drinking water as well as a beloved attraction for a number of communities.

The Grand River Conservation Authority manages the water and other natural resources on behalf of 38 municipalities and close to one million residents, overseeing planning and regulations, resources, recreation and education.
