The Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority (SSMRCA)

The Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority (SSMRCA) is one of Ontario's 36 conservation authorities. Located in northern Ontario, the SSMRCA provides cost-effective watershed management based on over 50 years of local experience.
"Our watershed encompasses a 775 square kilometre area which includes the St. Marys River watershed and a number of smaller watersheds draining the northern shore of Lake Superior. Sault Ste. Marie is home to approximately 74,000 people."

The SSMRCA owns and manages over 5,000 acres of diverse ecosystems including forests, wetlands and shorelines. Some of the properties contain significant natural features while others hold portions of our five flood control channels, the Fort Creek Dam and Reservoir. These water control structures help protect against the loss of life and property damage due to flooding.
