Canada-Ontario Agreement on Great Lakes: water

Priority - protecting waters

This priority focuses on understanding and reducing excessive nutrients, reducing or eliminating releases of harmful pollutants and protecting the Great Lakes from discharges from vessels in order to protect human and aquatic ecosystem health and well-being. Clean water is the foundation for healthy Great Lakes ecosystems, but is threatened by various sources of pollution and the adverse effects of this pollution are exacerbated by climate change. To address these issues, this priority includes annexes on nutrients, harmful pollutants and discharges from vessels.
