The Junction Creek Stewardship Committee is a dynamic organization focused on the restoration of a large urban waterway in the City of Greater Sudbury. The Committee was founded in 2009 and became a Canadian registered charity in 2019.

Junction Creek - which connects our community as it flows from its headwaters in Garson, through New Sudbury, under the downtown core and south to Kelly Lake - has long been impacted by urban and industrial activities. The Committee engages community members through hands-on educational and awareness programs and works with volunteers on restoration and research activities. Join us in creating hope through environmental restoration.

Our Vision: A healthy and revitalized Junction Creek ecosystem

Our Mission:

  • conducting research and monitoring programs to create understanding and inform sound decisions
