GBA Submission on Draft Canada-Ontario Agreement

September 4, 2019

The Canada-Ontario Agreement on Great Lakes Water Quality and Ecosystem Heath is the federal-provincial agreement that outlines how the government of Canada and Ontario provincial ministries coordinate their efforts to protect and conserve the Great Lakes ecosystem. This agreement is important as it binds Ontario into the provisions of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement between Canada and the US. Accordingly, GBA pulled together a comprehensive submission to address the many issues and action items that affect Georgian Bay. In addition to input from many of your GBA directors, particularly Claudette Young on the aquaculture content, we would like to thank: the Township of the Archipelago; and Georgian Bay Forever, Georgian Bay Land Trust and Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve for their efforts on your behalf in helping GBA assemble our submission.

Bill C-68 is an amendment to the Canada Fisheries Act designed to secure better environmental protection for fish and their habitats. GBA put together a comprehensive submission detailing concerns regarding open-cage aquaculture operations in Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, specifically the unsustainability of the operations and their breach of certain conditions of the proposed Bill C-68. In addition, GBA recommended two additional provisions be included in the Bill to enhance the protection of the Great Lakes aquatic ecosystems.
