Light Detection and Ranging, Lidar, is a surveying technology that uses laser light to measure distances. It's one of the many technologies that we use at TRCA to gather information about the environment, and create 3D representations and maps that support many of our programs and services. Check out this story map about our use of Lidar in the Toronto region.

Another significant milestone for Canada’s first national urban park has been reached! TRCA has transferred more than 470 acres of land around the Bob Hunter Memorial Park area to Parks Canada to help complete Rouge National Urban Park. The land features trails, restored wetland and planted native woodland, thanks to the efforts of the surrounding community and various organizations, alongside our partnerships with the City of Markham and York Region (The Regional Municipality of York).

Earlier in October, waves of light spilled out through The Bentway, under the Gardiner Expressway in downtown Toronto, where thousands of people gathered to experience the WATERLICHT installation. In this video, Dutch designer/innovator Daan Roosegaarde and TRCA's Director, Watershed Strategies Chandra Sharma, touch on how the light represented lake levels of past, recent flooding, and the possibility of future floods caused by climate change and extreme weather, and how the collective experience of this installation has helped bring people together to consider our future.
