Key Stakeholder Sectors

The lands that comprise the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere traverse from Lake Ontario all the way to the tip of the Bruce (Saugeen) Peninsula, extend a total of 725+km (UNESCO, 2018). As such, there are a wide variety of relevant audiences and stakeholders to consider that reside in the Biosphere or surrounding areas. Looking specifically at communication and partnership opportunities available to further education and community interaction with the Biosphere, eight sectors were identified. These include:

  • Outdoor Education Organizations
  • Regional Municipalities and Governments
  • Conservation Authorities
  • Independent Businesses, Corporations, and Associations
  • Non-governmental Organizations
  • Government Organizations, Commissions and Agencies
  • Colleges and Universities
  • Indigenous Nations and Groups
