About Us

About Us

In 2003, a group of Oro-Medonte residents came together to oppose the construction of a major development that would negatively impact Lake Simcoe, its watershed and promote urban sprawl. It soon became clear that this undertaking would take time and commitment; so in 2004, WORA became a non-profit corporation.

Our Mission

To work in cooperation with resident and conservation groups to promote responsible planning and sustainable development that protects the quality of life in the Township of Oro-Medonte and the environmental sensitivity of Lake Simcoe.
