Research Institutes in Canada

The Great Lakes Research Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER) research is currently focused on two interrelated themes that assess the impact of multiple stressors on large lakes and their watersheds. The themes are environmental chemistry and toxicology and conservation and resource management.

Maurice Demontague Institute

The Maurice Lamontagne Institute (MLI), located near Mont-Joli, in the province of Québec, on the shores of the St. Lawrence Estuary, is part of Fisheries and Oceans Canada's network of a dozen research centres and is one of the world's major francophone marine sciences centres. Inaugurated in 1987, the Maurice Lamontagne Institute has some 400 employees, and also welcomes post-doctorate fellows, visiting scientists and students. Many state of the art projects are carried out in collaboration with the fisheries and commercial shipping industries, as well as with universities. The Maurice Lamontagne Institute houses the Regional Science Branch and the Regional Oceans and Habitat Branch of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Quebec Region. Its mission is to provide the federal government with a scientific basis for the conservation of living marine resources, the protection of the marine environment, and safe maritime navigation, as well as to ensure the application of legislation designed for the integrated management of the marine environment and the protection of fish habitat. Research, monitoring and assessments are conducted, among other things, in relation to fisheries, marine mammals, oceanography, and habitats of the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence and Northern Quebec. The Canadian Hydrographic Service at the Institute is responsible for approximately 75 nautical charts covering the navigable waters of the region.
