Hamilton Conservation Authority


As the largest of 36 environmental management agencies in the province, the Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) works in partnership with the City of Hamilton and the Ontario Government to help ensure the preservation of environmentally significant lands. With a dedication to environmental conservation, the HCA owns and operates about 10,000 acres of land on which it focuses its efforts toward protecting water sources, guarding against potential flooding and erosion, and promoting environmental stewardship in the communities it serves. Prominent lands operated by the HCA include Dundas Valley, Christie, Lake and Valens Conservation Areas, Confederation Beach Park and Fifty Point Conservation Area and Marina.
