Lake Winnipeg is experiencing large and frequent algal blooms due to high nutrient levels from multiple transboundary sources, including agriculture, industry, municipal wastewater, and surface runoff. Environment and Climate Change Canada is working collaboratively with other government departments and stakeholders, as well as providing financial support, in an effort to improve the ecological health of the lake and to better understand the complex nutrient issues in the lake and basin.
This presentation will provide an overview of the various components of the Lake Winnipeg Basin Program and how Environment and Climate Change Canada is using a more focused and results-based approach to achieving results under this program
