Located at the tip of Southern Ontario, ERCA has jurisdiction in nine municipalities. These include the City of Windsor, Town of Pelee and the seven municipalities in Essex County . Nineteen representatives from these communities make up our Board of Directors. The area of our jurisdiction measures 1,681 square kilometres, and we manage more than 4,200 acres of natural lands. To provide effective services and programs, we work in partnership with our member municipalities, federal and provincial ministries and other organizations.
The Place for Life
The Place for Life is a region with connected natural areas. A place with healthy rivers and streams, beaches you can swim in and lakes you can fish in. It has greenways and trails that connect you to your landscape and to each other. A place with productive agricultural lands. A sustainable place that is resilient and can adapt to change.
We embrace this place, and make it our home. For life.
To enrich and sustain our region as the Place for Life.
How You Can Help
Every day, in every way, we have the opportunity to make sustainable choices to lessen our impact on the environment. Planting native trees, choosing reusable containers, conserving water, saying ‘no’ to straws and bottled water are just some of the ways we can make a difference!
