Comments or questions regarding the proposed project must be submitted to the Great Lakes National Program Office, Environment and Climate Change Canada at ec.grandslacs-greatlakes.ec@canada.ca or by mail at the address below, by September 4, 2019. Canada and Ontario have negotiated a project for 2020 COA. The draft agreement contains commitments on the following priorities: Canada and Ontario recognize that a new Canada-Ontario agreement may not be concluded and will enter into force before 2020. If a new Canada-Ontario agreement is not yet in place, when the current agreement expires, our great lakes cooperation can continue as we work to finalize the new Canada-Ontario agreement. This would be the ninth agreement between the two levels of government and aims to promote measures to address key Great Lakes challenges, such as improving wastewater and stormwater management and reducing pollution, including a new focus on road salt and plastic pollution. All interested parties are invited to read the 2020 COA project and comment. The Canada-Ontario Agreement on Great Lakes Water Quality and Ecosystem Health is the federal-federal agreement that supports the restoration and protection of the Great Lakes watershed ecosystem. The agreement outlines how the governments of Canada and Ontario will work together and coordinate their efforts to restore, protect and preserve the Great Lakes watershed ecosystem. This is the way in which Canadian federal departments interact with Ontario`s provincial departments to meet Canada`s obligations under the Great Lakes Canada Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA). Today, the governments of Canada and Ontario released a new draft agreement between Canada and Ontario on water quality and Great Lakes health to coordinate water quality protection measures in our Great Lakes.

To support the development of this new agreement, Canada and Ontario are seeking public input. The draft agreement may be the subject of a public comment between July 5 and September 4. A final agreement is expected in 2020. This communication was updated to inform the public on July 29, 2020, that this proposal is still under review. The department is currently reviewing the submissions received. The original date of the proposal and the comment period were not changed. We want to conclude a new canada-Ontario agreement to restore, protect and preserve water quality and the health of Great Lakes ecosystems. The governments of Canada and Ontario have adopted a draft Canada-Ontario Agreement on Water Quality and Ecosystem Health (COA).

Restoring, conserving and protecting our Great Lakes is an important part of our Made in Ontario ecological plan. Do you want us to let you know if this article is available?
