A clean, healthy Lake Winnipeg and watershed, now and for future generations.
To advocate for change and coordinate action to improve the health of Lake Winnipeg.
Founded by concerned citizens in 2005, LWF today is the only membership-based freshwater organization in Manitoba, working collaboratively with non-profit, academic, industry and government sectors, First Nations and the public to restore and protect our great lake.
Combining the expertise of our Science Advisory Council and the commitment of our members, LWF has been nationally recognized for our ability to link science with action. Our flagship initiative, the Lake Winnipeg Health Plan, identifies evidence-based actions to reduce phosphorus loading, the root cause of potentially harmful algal blooms.
