Displays areas regulated as a conservation reserve in order to: * permanently protect representative ecosystems, biodiversity and significant elements of Ontario's natural and cultural heritage * provide opportunities for ecologically sustainable land uses, including traditional outdoor heritage activities and associated economic benefits * allow for scientific research and provide points of reference to support monitoring of ecological change on the broader landscape Official LIO title: Conservation Reserve Regulated
A generalized summary of postal code data, of Canadian purchases of overnight camping permits for use at Ontario Parks. Includes a summary by country for non-Canadians. The data is specific to camping permits purchased through the camper registration system. Total counts are expressed in associated Forward Sortation Areas (FSAs). *[FSA]: Forward Sortation Areas

(Yes/No) * LFG Destruction % - Flare * LFG Destruction % - Electricity Generation * LFG – Other % * LFG Other % - Description * Annual LFG Collected (m3) * Methane (%) * Destruction Efficiency (%) – Flare * Destruction Efficiency (%) – Electricity Generation * Destruction Efficiency (%) – Other * Emissions Reductions – Global Warming Potential (GWP) 21 (tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e)) * Emissions Reductions - GWP 25 (tCO2e) * Carbon dioxide generated from Methane Destruction (tonnes) ### Related dataset(s) * [Small Landfill Sites](https://data.ontario.ca/en/dataset/small-landfill-sites) * [Large Industrial GHG Emissions](https://data.ontario.ca/en/dataset/greenhouse-gas-emissions-reporting-by-facility)
Shows areas where the health and prevalence of caribou can be linked to the attributes of the land that supports them. Ontario's Woodland Caribou Recovery Strategy (2008) provides advice and recommendations on the approaches needed for the recovery of Woodland Caribou. The strategy recommends the identification of ranges and local populations to: * maintain existing, self-sustaining, genetically-connected local populations of caribou * ensure security for and (reproductive) connections among currently isolated mainland caribou * re-establish caribou in strategic areas to create self-sustaining local populations and ensure connectivity Instructions for downloading this dataset: * select the link below and scroll down the metadata record page until you find **Transfer Options** in the **Distribution Information** section, * select the link beside the **Data for download** label, * you must provide your name, organization and email address in order to access the dataset This product requires the use of GIS software. *[GIS]: geographic information system
Data with the following information for small landfills: * open/closed status * site owner * site location * Certificate of Approval number **This dataset was last updated in 2014 and contains out of date information.

Volumes of water taken daily and annually under a Permit-to-Take-Water, as reported to the ministry under the Water Taking and Transfer Regulation 387/04. The Ontario Water Resources Act (Act) requires anyone who takes more than 50,000 litres of water in a day to obtain a Permit to take Water (PTTW) with some exceptions. Under the Act, the Water Taking and Transfer Regulation requires all holders of a PTTW to report the volume of water taken at each permitted source for each day of water taking. The data includes information from the permit on the purpose of the water taking, water source types and locations, as well as the daily and annual volume of water taken from each source.
This data set includes information on sampling locations and physical conditions in lakes and streams across Ontario. It also includes meteorological conditions from monitoring stations in south-central Ontario. __Lakes__ The data for lakes includes sampling location details and measurements such as: * temperature (1976-2021) * dissolved oxygen levels (1976-2021) * water transparency __Streams__ The data for streams includes measurements such as stream flow discharge from monitoring stations in south-central Ontario. (1976-2019) __Meteorological conditions__ This dataset contains meteorological conditions for climate stations close to monitored lakes in south-central Ontario. It includes measurements such as: * air temperature (1976-2020) * humidity (1976-2020) * precipitation (1976-2020) * wind speed (1976-2020) Data were collected since 1976 as part of routine monitoring of water quality of inland waters and for scientific and research purposes.
Ontario provincial parks are classified as one of the following : * Wilderness * Nature Reserve * Cultural Heritage * Natural Environment * Waterway * Recreational These parks are managed by Ontario Parks. The [Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act, 2006](http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statutes/english/elaws_statutes_06p12_e.htm) guides how these areas are planned and managed. The purpose of the Act is to: * permanently protect a system of provincial parks and conservation reserves * protect Ontario's natural and cultural heritage * maintain biodiversity * provide opportunities for ecologically sustainable recreation Instructions for downloading this dataset: * select the link below and scroll down the metadata record page until you find **Transfer Options** in the **Distribution Information** section * select the link beside the **Data for download** label * you must provide your name, organization and email address in order to access the dataset This product requires the use of GIS software. *[GIS]: geographic information system
