Since commencement of this review in 2020, the study team has consulted with the public, First Nations, lower-tier municipalities, ORV and active transportation users, and other stakeholders, to identify potential concerns, needs and opportunities related to the use of ORVs on County roads. In addition, alternative approaches for ORV use on County roads have been developed. 

As part of the ongoing consultation process, an online Public Information Centre (PIC) is being planned to present and gather your feedback on the alternative approaches to ORV use on County roads and next steps in the review process. Considering COVID-19 and physical distancing requirements, this PIC will be held online.
