The Meewasin Valley Authority exists to ensure a healthy and vibrant river valley, with a balance between human use and conservation.
- We promise to conserve, protect and preserve the 70 square kilometres of land that comprises the Meewasin Valley;
- We promise to encourage development in a way that balances the health of the region with the diversity of our people;
- We promise to educate the public and especially our young people, to more deeply understand our important role as stewards of the natural world.
Meewasin initiatives strive toward the outcomes of health, fit, balance and vibrancy.
Meewasin has and will continue to apply the following five fundamental principles in planning the Valley.
Valley's resources are accessible to everyone;
Conserve natural and heritage resources;
Recreation and development balanced with conservation;
Diverse activities for a varied and changing demographic; and
Public participation in decision making.
