Stewardship of the environment and quality of life are key aspects of many of the District Municipality of Muskoka's (District's) Services and Programs, and are reflected in the District's Strategic Priorities and Muskoka Official Plan.

|Muskoka Water Strategy|
The Muskoka Water Strategy is a framework of integrated and strategic initiatives for the protection of Muskoka's water resources.
The purpose of the strategy is to guide and minimize the impact of human activities on water resources; ensure human and environmental health; and preserve the quality of life in Muskoka.
Areas of natural heritage contribute to the character and essence of Muskoka as a mix of natural and man-made features generally including biologic, geologic, scenic and archaeological values.
To maintain the long-term integrity and the special character of the Muskoka environment, it is essential that these locally, regionally and provincially significant areas and features are preserved.
We have a variety of services and programs to help you dispose of waste the right way. You can find information by visiting Waste Management in Muskoka.
