Ontario's long term economic prosperity, environmental health and social well-being depend on:  
  1. managing change and promoting efficient, cost-effective development and land use patterns which stimulate economic growth and protect the environment and public health;
  2. protecting resources for their economic use and/or environmental benefits; and
  3. reducing the potential for public cost or risk to Ontario's residents by directing development away from areas where there is a risk to public health or safety or of property damage.
