The goal of the Lake Ontario Greenway Strategy is to foster commitment to actions that will regenerate a healthy and sustainable waterfront that is clean, green, accessible, connected, open, useable, diverse, affordable and attractive.

In partnership with municipalities and conservation authorities, the Waterfront Regeneration Trust has produced a Waterfront Trail User Survey to measure the economic and recreational benefits associated with the Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail and Greenway. A 300-km-long greenway trail system is a major component of the Lake Ontario Greenway Strategy. Darin Dinsmore’s work to develop and implement the Waterfront Trail Study formed the background for the plan.

The survey shows the Trail continues to be a highly-rated, frequently-used community amenity with potential to play a greater role in Ontario's tourism industry. Respondents sent a strong signal that work to complete the Trail is a priority. Overall 95% of respondents support a continuous Waterfront Trail.

IMPLEMENTATION of REGENERATION: TORONTO’S WATERFRONT AND THE SUSTAINABLE CITY- FINAL REPORT

“The work of the Royal Commission on the Future of the Toronto Waterfront highlights the links that exist between city and nature—among people, the economy, health, and environmental sustainability. It promotes the ecosystem approach to achieve both environmental regeneration and economic recovery. It suggests new ways of doing things; round-table processes to bring agencies, the public, and business together; integration of environmental and land use planning; and partnerships to get things done.”

- The Honourable David Crombie
