About MWC

MWC Banner

Muskoka Watershed Council (MWC) is an initiative of The District Municipality of Muskoka (DMM) and the Muskoka community. MWC was founded in 2001 and became incorporated as an independent non-profit organization in July 2019.

MWC is an advisory body and not a regulatory or enforcement agency. Instead, it makes recommendations to municipal governments, to decision-makers, to managers and to the general public on ways to protect and restore the resources of the area’s watersheds.

MWC strives to provide a framework for coordination and cooperation and prefers to use consensus as its decision-making process. MWC represents key interests and stakeholders across Muskoka’s watersheds, ensuring a comprehensive look at watershed issues. MWC members also regularly communicate with other groups and individuals, forming an even broader network of watershed stakeholders.
