Administrative & Meeting Procedural By-Law 2018-1
Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority is a non-share corporation, established under the Conservation Authorities Act (Act), with the objects to provide, in the area over which it has jurisdiction, programs and services designed to further the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources other than gas, coal and minerals.
Under the Act, municipalities within a common watershed are enabled to petition the province to establish a Conservation Authority. The purpose of the Act is to provide for the organization and delivery of programs and services that further the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources in watersheds in Ontario. The Authority is comprised of its Members, appointed as representatives by the Region of Durham.
If the Administrative and Meeting Procedural By-law conflicts with any provision of the Act, the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act, the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act or a provision of a regulation made under one of those Acts, the provision of those acts or regulations prevail.
The Members of the Conservation Authority form the General Membership of the Conservation Authority. The Members are bound by the Act and other applicable legislation. The Authority must always act within the scope of its powers.
The powers of a Conservation Authority to accomplish its objects are set out in the Act, including those identified under subsection 21(1).
Central Lake Ontario Conservation (CLOCA) is governed by members who make up our Board of Directors. Board Members are appointed for a four-year term, following municipal elections with representation based on municipal populations in our watershed. Our Board Members authorize CLOCA’s programs and policies, which are then implemented by staff.
