The Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) gives all Ontarians certain environmental rights. That means that all of us – ordinary citizens, students, politicians, policymakers, business people and activists – have legal rights and formal procedures for participating in environmental matters.

“Investors should be warned: the McBride Project is facing strong opposition by First Nation and affected community members and represents a significant risk forward,” says Ugo Lapointe of MiningWatch Canada, who released a new report at the Limerick Township Community Center.
As we gather momentum and work to strengthen our defense against the McBride mining project, we recognize that support from our community is critical to success.
Currently, LACC activities are being managed and funded by a small group of dedicated individuals.

Community members are concerned that the proposed low-grade, potentially acid generating, nickel-cobalt-copper mining project would irreparably alter or destroy this sensitive area.
The Limerick and Crowe Valley Watershed Conservation areas are home to numerous wetlands, lakes and rivers, and provide essential habitat to many species of fish, mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, including several threatened and endangered species.
This area also provides drinking water, as well as recreational and tourism opportunities to thousands of Ontarians each year.
Thank you for visiting the Limerick Area Conservation Coalition (LACC).
We are an organization of volunteers committed to protecting the environment and our community from the threat of mining in Limerick Township, Ontario, near Steenburg Lake.
