Healing Our Connection to Water and Place through Habitat Creation
Updated: Oct 19, 2022
The webinar will highlight two Indigenous-led projects to recreate natural spaces along major waterways (the St. Lawrence River and the St. Clair River) that have been impacted by historical and ongoing colonial development.
We will hear from experts and leaders from the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (Tekakwitha Island and Bay Restoration Project) and Walpole Island First Nation (Swan Lake Marsh rehabilitation).
Our speakers will discuss the details of the restoration projects, the historic intrusions on the territory that necessitated intervention, the challenges experienced in the design and implementation process, and the spiritual, cultural and practical significance of these spaces for the respective communities.
The benefits and limitations of these projects will be discussed and calls to action to further support Community led efforts will be shared.

Webinar #3: Keeping Up with Planning in Ontario: When: Tuesday December 6, 2022
Ontario has a housing and affordability crisis. But what does that really mean? The province released the Housing Affordability Task Force Report in February and has committed to ongoing housing supply action plans.
Join us as we explore how to provide attainable housing while balancing other provincial priorities, including greenspace, clean drinking water and safe development.
