The Greenbelt is located in the Southern portion of Ontario, Canada. Starting from Niagara on the Lake, the Greenbelt wraps around the Greater Toronto Area reaching as far east as Campbellford and as far north as the Kawartha Lakes. The Greenbelt area encompasses a total of 2 million acres of land, which is divided and protected by the Niagara Escarpment Plan, the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan, and the Greenbelt Plan (Greenbelt Plan, 2017). Currently, the Greater Golden Horseshoe, surrounding the outer limits of the Greenbelt, holds a population of 9 million people. However, with current estimates, the population in this region is expected to increase to approximately 13.5 million people by 2041 (Ontario Land Use and Planning, ND). The Greenbelt encompasses prime agricultural areas, specialty crop areas, rural lands and areas associated with Ontario’s agri-food network. The Greenbelt also includes natural systems such as water resource areas and key hydrologic features (Greenbelt Plan, 2017). Given that a highlight within the Greenbelt Act is focused on agriculture the topography of the land will be rather flat with some hills and low lying areas situated favorably for the accumulation of rich organic soils from past glaciations (Webber and Hoffman, 1967).
