2021 Supporters

Thank You to our 2021 Donors & Supporters

Thanks to you, we raised $1,954,891 and made a $1,580,229 contribution to CVC programs and projects in 2021. Your generosity signals your commitment to our local environment and reflects CVC’s important role as a champion for nature, empowered by you, to lead local initiatives that will benefit our watershed for generations, including:

  • Rattray Marsh Restoration 
    • Upgrades were completed on two trails - Knoll Trail and Silver Maple Lane at the Upper Sheridan Creek Bridge.
  • Credit Valley Trail Wayfinding Signage
    • Second official wayfinding signs were installed at Ken Whillans Resource Management Area, the section of the trail spans close to 1.6 kilometres.
  • Planting Events 
    • 87 events engaged and educated 1,378 youth about the importance of environmental awareness. As a result, 26 sites were restored which included planting 1,998 native trees and shrubs, 189 native wildflowers and removing 34,308 square metres of invasive species.
  • Island Lake Conservation Area Covered Bridge 
    • The new Island Lake Conservation Area covered bridge was designed and constructed entirely in-house by CVC staff and members of the Friends of Island Lake.
  • Indigenous Placemaking along the Credit Valley Trail in Caledon
    • In 2021, CVC staff worked with two Elders from the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN) to film content for the ‘Fish Site’ dodem. The programmatic content showcases stories as told by MCFN Elders to convey important lessons through their grandfather teachings regarding the environmental and spiritual significance of the Credit River, the surrounding habitat and local species and the rich natural and cultural heritage of the river valleylands.
  • Building Capacity to Reduce Community Heat Vulnerability in Brampton
    • Through the efforts of local volunteers, staff and residents, 2,878 native trees were planted in parks and open spaces, private yards and on corporate and institutional properties. In total, 17,483 residents were reached through the project’s campaign. Climate-related educational programming engaged over 1,800 local students and their teachers, as well as 700 adult learners, newcomers and community group members. Skills development workshops and webinars were delivered to 360 homeowners to help build their capacity to plant native trees and take climate action.
