Severn Sound Environmental Association > About Us

The Severn Sound Environmental Association (SSEA) is a Joint Service Board under the Municipal Act (Section 202). It was originally founded in 1997 as a partnership between federal, provincial and municipal partners to support the completion of the Severn Sound Remedial Action Plan and to provide a local, community-based environmental office in the Severn Sound area. The SSEA provides continuing support to the federal and provincial agencies, but particularly to the local municipalities, to sustain environmental quality and to ensure continued protection through wise stewardship of Severn Sound and its tributaries.
