Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LPRCA) is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the municipalities within the Long Point Region watershed. The counties of Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk and Oxford and the municipalities within Elgin County appoint one or more representatives to the LPRCA Board to oversee the budget and set policy for the conservation authority. These eleven appointed members speak on behalf of residents at the LPRCA.
