Great Lakes Public Forum 2022

Posted: May 26, 2022

Registration for the 2022 Great Lakes Public Forum is closed. The Forum took place at the Crowne Plaza Fallsview Hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada on September 27-29, 2022. The next Great Lakes Public Forum will take place in 2025 in the United States.


The United States and Canada invite members of the public, organizations, and agencies with an interest or involvement in restoration and protection of the in Great Lakes to attend the 2022 Great Lakes Public Forum. We want to hear from you on Great Lakes matters!

The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement calls for the United States and Canada to convene the Great Lakes Public Forum once every three years to discuss the state of the lakes, progress made under the Agreement and proposed priorities to guide science and actions over the next three years. The Forum also provides an opportunity for the public to provide input to the International Joint Commission, who are tasked with advising the United States and Canada with respect to the implementation of the Agreement.

This year’s Forum holds special significance as it falls on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement between Canada and the United States. We hope you’ll join us at the Forum to celebrate this important milestone!
