Sustaining The Essex Region Since 1973

The Essex Region Conservation Authority was established in 1973 as one of Ontario’s 36 Conservation Authorities. Located at the tip of Southern Ontario, ERCA has jurisdiction in nine municipalities. These include the City of Windsor, Township of Pelee and the seven municipalities in Essex County. Nineteen representatives from these communities are appointed to the Board of Directors. ERCA’s three main watersheds include Lake St. Clair, the Detroit River, and Lake Erie. Its area of jurisdiction measures 1,681 square kilometres, and more than 4,200 acres of natural lands are managed to ensure their long-term conservation.
