Protecting The Niagara Escarpment: The Success Story of the Niagara Escarpment Plan

How well has the Ontario government’s Niagara Escarpment program fulfilled its objectives over the past 30 years? To begin to answer this question, the Niagara Escarpment Foundation, in partnership with the Coalition on the Niagara Escarpment, commissioned five studies to examine the on-the-ground impact of the Niagara Escarpment Plan in five key areas:

  • preservation of natural shorelines;
  • protection of farmland;
  • protection of forests and ecological corridors;
  • curbing of urban sprawl;
  • enhancement of property values.

Protecting the Niagara Escarpment: The Success Story of the Niagara Escarpment Plan is an 8-page summary report of those studies. Contact us to send you one or more hard copies. Most of the background studies for this publication are also available:
