Gov't Funds Clean Up Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay

The Lake Simcoe South-eastern Georgian Bay Clean-Up Fund will help restore ecological health of Lake Simcoe and South-eastern Georgian Bay and improve water quality for the residents and wildlife of the region. 

The five-year $29 million fund is part of the Government of Canada’s Comprehensive Approach to Clean Water and will be managed by Environment Canada. It will support community-based projects that are focused on priorities such as reducing phosphorous inputs from urban and rural sources, restoring fish and aquatic wildlife habitat, and addressing nearshore toxic and nuisance algae growth.
