Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) hosted the Lake Winnipeg Basin Program (LWBP) Virtual Symposium on January 18, 19, and 20, 2022. This symposium forms part of the LWBP’s efforts to share recent scientific advancements and nutrient reduction actions in the Basin and followed a previous in-person symposium held in Winnipeg on March 20 and 21, 2019. The first two days of the symposium focused on ECCC led research, with Day 3 focused on projects funded through the LWBP’s grants and contributions funding.

The symposium was opened and closed each day in a good way, with comments and prayers.Indigenous Elders Mary Maytwayashing, Florence Paynter, and Linda St. Cyr-Saric shared their knowledge, perspectives, and their wishes for a good future for the health of Lake Winnipeg and Taylor Fleming from the Manitoba Métis Federation shared her fiddle playing passion.
