about us

The Lake Winnipeg Foundation (LWF) is a membership-based environmental charity that advocates for change and coordinates action to improve the health of Lake Winnipeg.

We were founded in 2005 by concerned citizens who believed they could change things for the better. This belief continues to drive our efforts.

Combining the commitment of our grassroots membership and the expertise of our science advisors, LWF is nationally recognized for our unique capacity to link science and action.

We are focused on advancing evidence-based solutions to reduce phosphorus loading, the root cause of harmful algal blooms on Lake Winnipeg.

Our goal is to ensure policy and practices informed by evidence are implemented and enforced.

Together with our members, we are determined to create meaningful change.
