Administrative history

The Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation (ORMF) was a non-regulatory governing body operating from 2002 to 2017. It was established to complement the goals of the Ontario Government’s Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan (ORMCP). The ORMCP is a comprehensive strategy for land use and resource management in the Oak Ridges Moraine, which stretches 160 kilometers across southern Ontario from Rice Lake to the Niagara Escarpment.

ORMF was given an initial grant of $15 million from the Ontario Government, with a mandate to support stewardship, education, research, land securement and trail projects in the Oak Rides Moraine. It distributed over $14 million in grants, and worked with Moraine partners to leverage and additional $38.5 million in funding for 177 projects.

ORMF was governed by a Board of Directors composed to six members: two nominated by the environmental community, one nominated by Conservation Ontario, one by the Federal Government, and two nominated by the Ontario Government.

ORMF ceased operations in March 2017.
