Ontario Invests Over $1.9 million to Protect and Restore the Great Lakes

Published on July 21, 2021

The Great Lakes are the foundation of Ontario’s economic prosperity and well-being – supplying water to our communities, sustaining traditional activities of Indigenous peoples, supporting Ontario’s economy, and providing healthy ecosystems for recreation and tourism.

 

The Ontario government has selected 44 community-based projects to receive $1.9 million in funding through the Great Lakes Local Action Fund, which supports local projects that protect and restore the Great Lakes such as shoreline restoration, erosion prevention and improving water quality, including here in Newmarket-Aurora.

 

This funding allows local organizations and groups to take environmental actions in their own communities – building a better future with clean, green growth.

 

Supporting local actions that protect the Great Lakes is a key commitment in Ontario’s plan to protect our air, land and water.
