The Council of Great Lakes Research Managers was created under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement to provide advice to IJC and enhance IJC's ability to provide effective leadership, guidance, support and evaluation of Great Lakes research programs with particular reference to programs required or funded pursuant to the provisions of the Agreement.

IJC is a binational Canada-United States organization established by TheBoundary Waters Treaty of 1909 to help the two Governments prevent and resolve disputes over use of waters along the U.S. and Canada boundary. Three Commissioners are appointed by the president of the United States and three by the government of Canada. Under the 1978 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, IJC assesses progress by the two countries to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters of the Great Lakes basin ecosystem. Additional information about the IJC and the Council is available on the Internet at
