The St. Clair River and Detroit River are binational Areas of Concern shared by Canada and the United States. Restoring the Great Lakes Areas of Concern The Great Lakes basin is Canada's most populated region. Its large population and extensive development places a strain on ecosystem health and benefits to people.

This indicator assesses progress on restoring areas with. removed from the list of Areas of Concern. Currently, there are 9 Areas of Concern on the Canadian side of the Great Lakes, 25 in the United States, and 5 that are shared by both countries (the St.

The contributions of binational, federal, provincial and local agencies, local industries, and other community partners continue to have a positive impact upon the water quality and ecosystem health within the Canadian section of the Detroit River Area of Concern (AOC).

Specifically, it measures progress towards restoring beneficial uses in 5 Canadian Great Lakes Areas of Concern (Nipigon Bay, Peninsula Harbour, Niagara River, Bay of Quinte, and St.
