Land Over Landings

Town: Claremont

Ontario Nature Region: Lake Ontario North

Land Over Landings was formed in 2005 and incorporated in 2015. What’s at stake are some 9,000 acres of our province’s most productive farmland. This land, which has been held for 45 years by Transport Canada in case it might one day be needed for an airport, is Class 1 farmland crisscrossed by freshwater streams and natural habitat corridors.


We believe that in a world of unprecedented population growth and accelerating climate change, where field crops are by far our main food source, our future depends on preserving access to agricultural areas that can reliably grow the food we need to survive.


Our mission is to secure the protection of the Lands’ watersheds, prime farmland, and natural habitat by convincing the federal government to preserve this irreplaceable natural resource in perpetuity.


Our vision is to see a community revived and the Lands transformed into a permanent regional food hub (a fine neighbour for the Rouge National Urban Park), serving Canada’s largest urban market, and providing the area with fresh opportunities, secure jobs, and a healthy, sustainable future.


August, 2017.
