Overview

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is hosting a three-day virtual symposium to highlight project activities and research undertaken through the Lake Winnipeg Basin Program.

The symposium has been organized to focus on:

  • Sharing research findings from ECCC-led research related to nutrients and water quality in Lake Winnipeg and its basin

  • Featuring program accomplishments including highlights of projects undertaken by funding recipients to reduce nutrient loading to the lake, enhance collaboration throughout the basin and engage Indigenous peoples on water quality issues related to Lake Winnipeg

  • Gathering feedback on research presented and on research gaps, as well as future program priorities for the Lake Winnipeg Basin Program

Sessions

The first two days focused on sharing research findings from ECCC-led research related to nutrients and water quality. The last day focused on presentations from funding recipients on the status and accomplishments of their projects.
