Implementing the Plan

Turning Policy Into Action

The CTC Source Protection Plan designates who is responsible for implementing its policies.  Local and regional municipalities, provincial ministries and source protection authorities could all be listed as responsible for policy implementation.

​The Source Protection Plan specifies which implementing body has responsibility for each policy. For example, if a policy affects decisions under the Planning Act, such as proposed land use changes, implementation would fall to the municipality. If a policy impacts instruments under the provincial Nutrient Management Act, the implementing body would be the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs​.

The Ontario ministries designated as implementing bodies are:

SOURCE WATER PROTECTION INFORMATION ATLAS

Developed  by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, the Source Water Protection Information Atlas allows users to search a location to determine if it lies within a vulnerable area. The mapping tool also provides a link to the relevant source protection plan, so that a user can quickly learn which activities are prohibited or need to be managed on properties located in vulnerable areas.

Who needs this information?

  • Business developers
  • Farm owners
  • Municipalities
  • Prospective home owners
