The Grand-Erie Study

This graduate research is being completed by Elaine Ho, a PhD Candidate at the University of Waterloo.  The main goal is to provide recommendations on how monitoring (measuring and interpreting data) can be improved and coordinated near the mouth of the Grand River and into the nearshore area of Lake Erie.  To achieve this goal, we are identifying priorities for monitoring (e.g., issues to address and important things to preserve), engaging with stakeholders and rights-holders (e.g., the Canadian public, local water managers, and Six Nations of the Grand River), and co-creating as much of the research and its results as we can.
