At the Ministry of the Environment our vision is a healthy environment for a strong Ontario. We see new approaches and solutions arising right across Ontario – in communities creating more sustainable futures, in businesses cutting waste and costs, and among researchers developing innovations for a growing green marketplace.
We work with people across the province to protect our air, land, and water. Our goal is a healthy environment where Ontario’s people, businesses and communities thrive, now and in the future.
