Lake Ontario Evenings are presented by the Toronto and Region Remedial Action Plan team. Toronto and Region is one of 40 locations around the Great Lakes where local environmental degradation may be causing harm to the wider Great Lakes system. A Remedial Action Plan (RAP) is a mandated process with the goal of cleaning-up, or remediating areas identified as having negative impacts on the Great Lakes. Lake Ontario Evenings are a speaker series and public forum that bring together individuals and organizations that work at the forefront of environmental challenges in Toronto and Region, Lake Ontario and the Great Lakes with the purpose of sharing ideas, learning from each other and raising awareness.
