The Lake Simcoe Protection Act was passed by the Legislature on December 2, 2008. The Act will require the creation of the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan and sets out criteria that must be addressed in the plan. The Act also provides the authority to municipalities to regulate activities that will affect the health of the watershed and, in turn, the lake.
