Welcome to the 2022 Great Lakes Public Forum Registration site!

The 2022 Great Lakes Public Forum will take place at the Crowne Plaza Fallsview Hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada on September 27-29, 2022.

This is a hybrid event with limited capacity for in-person attendance. Registration for this event is free! Registration for the in-person event has now closed. You can still register to attend virtually. 

The Great Lakes Public Forum is convened once every three years to discuss the state of the lakes, progress made under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, and proposed priorities to guide science and actions over the next three years. The meeting 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.

For full event details, visit binational.net. Additional information will be posted on binational.net as it becomes available. For any questions, please contact the Registration Coordinator at greatlakes-grandlacs@ec.gc.ca.
