Essex Region Conservation Authority


The Essex Region Conservation Authority is empowered through provincial legislation to further the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources other than gas, oil, coal and minerals. This mandate remains as valid today as it was in 1946, when the first Conservation Authority was established.

ERCA was established in 1973 as one of the last Conservation Authorities in Ontario to work toward restoring some of the region’s original character and to manage conservation issues. 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 that collectively comprise Canada’s South Coast.
