About this grant

Ecojustice Canada, formerly known as the Sierra Legal Defence Fund Society, seeks to protect the Great Lakes through scientific and legal research, policy analyses, and public education. With prior Mott support, the grantee worked to improve Great Lakes water quality by addressing toxic pollutants, encouraging upgrades to sewage infrastructure, and identifying ways to eliminate the introduction of aquatic invasive species. With renewed support, the grantee will continue these initiatives while also partnering with other nongovernmental organizations around the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.
