Binational Public Engagement For GLWQA Amendments

May 27: The Governments of Canada and the United States (the Parties) recognize the importance of engaging the Great Lakes community as they proceed with the negotiations to amend the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA). Therefore, to ensure broad and meaningful public engagement, the Parties are inviting public input on a number of substantive issues being addressed during the negotiations.   
    The parties have established a series of binational public webinars on the issues at various times on June 7, 8, and 9. The issues include: Governance including Place-Based Approaches and Science Coordination; Climate Change Impacts and Habitats and Species; Toxic Substances; Nutrients; and Ship-Source Pollution and Aquatic Invasive Species. They are interested in receiving input and comments on all issues and have established a separate website for comments on all issues.
