Credit Valley Conservation (CVC)


Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is a community-based environmental organization, dedicated to protecting, restoring and managing the natural resources of the Credit River Watershed. Established by the provincial government in 1954, CVC is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario. As the primary scientific authority for the watershed, CVC works in partnership with municipal governments, schools, businesses and community organizations to deliver locally-based programs. These programs support:


  • Water resources
  • Land management and acquisition
  • Environmental advisory services (Planning)
  • Conservation area management
  • Stewardship
  • Education
  • Natural heritage.


We invite you to go outside and explore one of CVC’s 10 conservation areas to enjoy: hiking, fishing, swimming, birding, boating and many other recreational activities. CVC also offers residents opportunities to get involved in protecting the natural environment through a variety of programs and services.
