Source Protection Committee

Source Protection Committees were established for each of the 19 Source Protection Regions in Ontario. The committees are made up of municipal, public, and sector representatives appointed by the Source Protection Authority. Committee Chairs were appointed by the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change. These committees are responsible for preparing the Terms of Reference, Assessment Reports and Source Protection Plans to meet the requirements of the Clean Water Act. The Committees are required to follow the Clean Water Act, its regulations, Director’s rules, guidance material created by the Province, and to work collaboratively with municipalities and Source Protection Authorities.

The Raisin-South Nation Source Protection Committee is made up of 15 members plus a chairperson. The 15 member committee represents the interests of the local municipalities, agricultural sector, commercial and industrial sectors, and the general public. There are additional (non-voting) liaisons representing each Source Protection Authority, the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, and the local Health Unit. The committee make-up is shown in below.
