Coastal Protection Committee

Coastal Protection Committee


The purpose of this committee is to review information, concerns and issues that relate to various matters regarding coastal protection of the east and north coasts of Georgian Bay (plus the Bay of Islands) and provide recommendations to the GBA board on action needed. The GBA board makes all decisions in this respect. It is envisaged that new matters will arise over time. This will be a dynamic committee that will bring forward new ideas and assist GBA in developing strategies to address coastal protection issues. A good description would be a “think tank”.
