About this grant

Ecojustice Canada is a national environmental organization that seeks to protect Great Lakes water quality through scientific and legal research, policy analyses, and public education. With prior Mott support, the grantee helped inform the renegotiation of the U.S.-Canada Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, engaged in binational discussions regarding the Asian Carp threat, and sought to reduce toxic freshwater pollutants. With renewed support, the grantee will inform how the Canada-Ontario Agreement is updated to implement the new Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. The grantee will also continue to build public support for Great Lakes water quality issues and address high priority Great Lakes threats.
