  • At year’s end, WaterTAP introduced the GREENLAND® Group to a Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) team developing an Indigenous Youth Program at the Bolton Camp in Caledon, Ontario. GREENLAND® will provide financial assistance for a new internship program. Since 2016, Urban Watershed Group Limited (GREENLAND® Group affiliate) has served as the engineer-of-record for the Bolton Camp development design team led by LGA Architectural Partners. The attached project profile outlines work now completed by the GREENLAND® Group affiliate, Urban Watershed Group.​
The idea for the Youth Program was developed by TRCA, Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, University of Toronto, and with support from Ryerson University. The Program will explore a participatory model for practice that includes the voices of Indigenous Youth and Elders/Traditional Knowledge Keepers (TKK) in planning and designing for green infrastructure. This initiative is motivated by the need to address a lack of Indigenous people in green infrastructure work; integrate Indigenous themes of respect, relationship, reciprocity, responsibility into planning and design; and, address a growing intergenerational gap on traditional environmental knowledge. The new 2018 summer internship program will connect Indigenous youth with Elders/TKK on the land while they learn new ideas and skills in an engaging way (with visiting mentors) and to encourage them to consider career opportunities in green infrastructure. A documentary filmmaker (preferable Indigenous) will be hired to teach the youth about film making and as a storytelling exercise about the experience. The youth and Elders/TKK will also be invited to drop in to participate in winter term graduate courses on green infrastructure being taught at the University of Toronto and Ryerson University, with visits to project sites to look for opportunities for green infrastructure, Indigenous place-making, and interpretive walking tours to celebrate natural and cultural history.
 
For many years, GREENLAND® has financially supported (and participated in) environmental stewardship and education partnerships with Canada’s First Nations and Métis Nations. This includes the BEAHR (ECO Canada) Aboriginal Training Program and curriculum programs offered by the Anishinabek Educational Institute.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

In March of 2013, Greenland International Consulting Ltd. completed a study for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to estimate nutrient loading in small catchment of about 177 square kilometers in the La Salle River watershed in southern Manitoba using the CANWET 4 model. Given uncertainties in some input data and model parameters, the preliminary results using the CANWET 4 model for baseline conditions of stream discharge, nutrient concentrations and loads were satisfactory in our project team as simulated values were within the range of observed values during the validation period.

This study suggests the CANWET 4 modeling approach could be used to predict changes to nutrient loads from changing land use scenarios in watersheds of this region.

County of Simcoe

The County of Simcoe is the upper tier government and planning authority for most of the South Georgian Bay – Lake Simcoe Source Water Protection Region. The County, in partnership with its member municipalities, other levels of government, floodplain management agencies and two (2) conservation authorities, also provides leadership through policy, and actively in the restoration and protection of the environmental health and quality of these watersheds. As you know, in order to comply with, and be environmentally proactive with respect to the Province of Ontario’s “Places to Grow” legislation, the County of Simcoe utilized innovative decision support tools such as Greenland’s CANWET™ model. In 2012, CANWET™ was also used by the County to prepare a “Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Visioning Strategy”. To this day, the information in the Strategy’s final report is used by local municipalities, development interests and other stakeholders as a background reference to help identify sustainable development solutions.
 
This letter confirms the County of Simcoe's commitment of support which includes initially facilitating the introduction of this landmark international collaboration with all 16 local municipalities, other governments (small and large) and other agencies that partner now with the County of Simcoe on land use planning; infrastructure renewal; and flooding risk/damage reduction initiatives.
 
As always, I look forward to our continued working relationship with you and your colleagues and the significant benefits these efforts will have for our residents and environment. The County of Simcoe appreciates your efforts towards developing information based decision making tools and we are confident that this project will prove beneficial in our collaborative goal to improve watershed health for all County residents.
