ABOUT GREENBELT

The Greenbelt Fund is a charitable grant-making organization working to help keep farmers successful, strengthen local economies, and protect and grow natural features.

Ontario’s Greenbelt is 2 million acres of protected land. It extends as far north as Tobermory and stretches 325 kilometres from Rice Lake in Northumberland County to the Niagara River. The Greenbelt also wraps around the Greater Golden Horseshoe — the area that surrounds the western end of Lake Ontario. One of the fastest growing regions in North America, by 2031 the population of the Greater Golden Horseshoe is expected to increase to more than 11 million.
