Governments of Ontario and Canada Release Action Plan to Reduce Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie

Protecting and managing water quality in our lakes and rivers is essential for the well-being of Canadians, our environment and economic prosperity. Safeguarding our environment and growing our economy go hand in hand. This is why today, the Governments of Canada and Ontario have released the final Lake Erie Action Plan.

 

The plan identifies more than 120 federal, provincial and partner actions, using mandatory and voluntary approaches, to help achieve the goal of reducing phosphorus entering Lake Erie by 40 per cent. The plan will be reviewed and revised as needed over time to ensure continued progress towards achievement of targets.
