Source Protection Committee Chair

Expression of Interest

Source Protection Committee Chair Recruitment Process

The Trent Conservation Coalition (Crowe Valley, Ganaraska Region, Kawartha, Lower Trent and Otonabee Conservation Authorities) is inviting members of the public to submit expressions of interest for the Chair of its Source Protection Committee (SPC).  Based on the submissions received and follow-up interviews, recommendations for Chair will be sent to the Minister of Environment.  The Minister will appoint the Chair.

The formation of an SPC for each source protection region is a requirement of the Clean Water Act.  The SPC will be responsible for developing a Terms of Reference, Assessment Report and Source Protection Plan for each watershed in the region.  A regulation outlining the process and timelines for establishing the Source Protection Committee and selecting the Chair will be posted on the website for the Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) Registry http://www.ene.gov.on.ca/envision/env_reg/ebr/english/index.htm  in spring 2007.  It is anticipated that the committee will need to be in place by the fall of 2007 and that the Chair will have a role in selecting the committee members.   The Chair selection process needs early initiation to facilitate committee formation within the anticipated timelines to be set out in the regulations.  

Since the process and timelines for selecting candidates for Chair will be governed by regulations set out by the Province, it should be noted that additional steps may need to be taken to conform to the regulations.
