St. Lawrence River Restoration Council

What is the St. Lawrence River Restoration Council?

The St. Lawrence River Restoration Council (SLRRC) was formed in 1998 in order to oversee and address identified or Beneficial Use impairments (BUIs) that have been identified within the St. Lawrence River Area of Concern at Cornwall. Over the years, SLRRC membership has been made up of federal and provincial government agencies, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA), the municipalities of Cornwall and South Glengarry, the River Institute and other local environmental groups, and industry. Designates and citizen members are elected to the Council annually at the Annual General Meeting.
