The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Collaborative is hosting a one-day event to present draft recommendations for Great Lakes protection to stakeholders. The event is taking place in Toronto, Ontario, on May 1, 2019 and will also be livestreamed for those that cannot attend in-person.

Join our Expert Panel co-chairs, Gord Miller and Jean Cinq-Mars, to discuss draft recommendations on the next generation of Great Lakes protection in the areas of:

1) the management of toxics and harmful pollutants, particularly regarding cumulative exposure

2) adopting a risk-based approach to beaches and bacteriological contamination

3) climate change and its impact on shoreline communities

4) nutrients and the value of precision conservation and stormwater optimization

We are very pleased to announce our key note speaker, Cam Davis. Cam has recently been elected Commissioner of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. He is the former special advisor on the Great Lakes to President Obama. Cam will speak about the importance of collaboration between Canada and the United States on Great Lakes protection, and the contribution that the Collaborative recommendations could make to this important relationship.

The Summit is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the recommendations under development and to provide your thoughts and feedback before they are shared with key decision makers.
