Conservation Halton takes a sustainable and transparent approach to finance management, using established guidelines, judicious principles and a rigorous approval process to ensure efficient and equitable division of expenditures supported by public funds, user fees, and other self-generated revenues.

Conservation Halton does receive some funding from our municipal and provincial partners for specific programs, but this funding can only be used for dams, channels, reservoirs, flood forecasting, regulations and other functions of watershed management and its support services. Conservation Halton Parks recreation programs, on the other hand, do not receive funding from our municipal partners. Instead, the parks are self-sufficient in their funding sources through entrance fees, program fees and annual membership purchases. Conservation Halton made the decision, several years ago, to operate the recreation programs in our parks without any municipal funding but this is not the case for all conservation authorities in the province.
