The Aquatic Habitat Toronto collaboration was initiated to advance the partnership of agencies for approvals and fostering habitat

Initiated as a result of the Aquatic Habitat Strategy done for Toronto's waterfront, the work of Aquatic Habitat Toronto was brought together as a collaboration to advance improved conditions for habitat as part of revitalization of Toronto's waterfront. Lisa Prime played a key role in bringing the collaboration together with Waterfront Toronto, City of Toronto, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, Environment Canada, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and other agencies as required. This key group focuses on review of development from concept and strategies for habitat, including the establishment of a local habitat bank. The advancement of the Don River Mouth restoration contributes to the delisting of Toronto as an AOC in the Great Lakes. PRIME is proud of this work and the potential to bring partners together to benefit project success for all. Article published in the Canadian Institute of Planners Journal.
