If my land is in the Biosphere reserve is my use of the land restricted?

No. Land use activities (building construction, water course impacts, shoreline manipulation etc.) are already regulated by your municipal, provincial and federal laws.  At the present time, NGO’s are working with municipal governments to establish consistent development guidelines – to protect the shoreline of the Lake against over development and erosion, and to protect residents and developers against the effects of climate change and rising sea level.  The Biosphere designation means that best practices are encouraged, promoted and rewarded. Positive reward for positive action!
