Abstract

Wetlands are recognized as one of the Canadian province of Ontario’s most diverse and productive habitats, upon which a wide diversity of wildlife and human benefits depend. The Wetland Habitat Fund was created to support and encourage land owners who conserve and enhance wetland habitat for wildlife. The Fund provides private land owners with financial assistance for projects that improve the ecological integrity of wetland habitats.
