About the Great Lakes Commission
The GLC was established in 1955 with a mandate to “promote the orderly, integrated and comprehensive development, use and conservation of the water resources of the Great Lakes basin.” Founded in state law with U.S. federal consent the GLC pursues four primary functions: communications and outreach, information management and delivery, facilitation and consensus building, policy coordination and advocacy, and regional project management. The Commission consists of governors’ appointees, state legislators, and agency officials from its eight member states. Associate membership for Ontario and Québec was established through the signing of a “Declaration of Partnership.” In carrying out its initiatives, the GLC works in close cooperation with many partner organizations, including U.S. and Canadian federal agencies, binational institutions, tribal/First Nation governments, and other regional interests. Representatives appointed by partner entities participate extensively in GLC activities through a formal Observer program. The GLC is supported by a professional staff in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
