The Great Lakes Challenge is made possible by the generosity of The W. Garfield Weston Foundation. With its support, the Great Lakes Challenge transforms the way you think about restoration and how you connect to water. 

The Great Lakes Challenge collaborates with Great Lakes communities to develop and implement revolutionary restoration projects changing your Great Lakes experience forever. 

The Gord Edgar Downie Pier was officially unveiled during the re-opening ceremonies of
