Key Rights and Stakeholders Sectors

We would like to acknowledge the constitutional rights affirmed in Section 35 of the 1982 Canadian Constitution Act for First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples.

The lands that comprise the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere traverse from Lake Ontario all the way to the tip of the Bruce (Saugeen) Peninsula, extending a total of 725+km (UNESCO, 2018). As such, there is 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:

Key Stakeholder Groups

  • Outdoor Education Organizations
  • Regional Municipalities and Governments
  • Conservation Authorities
  • Independent Businesses, Corporations, and Associations
  • Non-governmental Organizations
