Supporting TRCA Projects on our Watersheds

How will TRCA use the 2019 Manulife Paddle the Don registration fees to conserve the watersheds in the Toronto region?

Developing opportunities for people to experience, engage in, and help enhance the natural environment in the Toronto region is one of the most important aspects of ensuring its sustainable protection and conservation.

Your support helps Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) conserve the natural system and provides opportunities to educate and engage the public on the importance of protecting the watersheds that make up this remarkable area.
