In 1997, when support for the Remedial Action Plan (RAP) for the Niagara River Area of Concern was required (Read More about the Niagara River), the Niagara Restoration Council was incorporated in order to help facilitate the RAP. This was initially a temporary adjustment to the NRC’s mandate. However, given the success of the NRC’s contributions, the NRC underwent a change of direction to a project-based organization, in 2001. This was primarily done for the purpose of securing much needed core-funding. After a thorough examination of local environmental groups, it was recognized that the NRC offered a resource that otherwise was not being offered in the Niagara Region.
The NRC is now a non-profit, non-government environmental organization that runs “in the ground”, large-scale projects that utilize volunteers from all sectors of the Niagara community.
