Abstract

This paper examines the ways in which the negative effects of downsizing can be reduced based on a survey of stakeholders involved in the downsizing processes of three conservation authorities in Ontario – Ausable Bayfield, Saugeen Valley, and Upper Thames River. The findings reveal that the most important factor to consider with respect to downsizing is whether there are good human resource management practices in place long before the downsizing process is to occur.
