Niagara Restoration Council fonds, 1989-2015, n.d.
|dc.description||The Niagara Restoration Council (NRC) is a not-for-profit environmental organization whose mandate is to protect, maintain and actively restore the ecosystems of Niagara. The Council originated in 1989 as the Public Advisory Committee (PAC) for the Niagara River Remedial Action Plan. The Niagara River Remedial Action Plan was an international effort initiated under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, which identified 43 Areas of Concern across the Great Lakes Basin. The PAC represented community stakeholders and advised a team of scientists and engineers. By 1997, support for the Remedial Action Plan process was diminishing. In order to remain relevant, the PAC incorporated to become the Niagara River Restoration Council. The Council sought to facilitate the Remedial Action Plan by creating partnerships with the community and private sector. In 2001, the Niagara River Restoration Council became the Niagara Restoration Council (NRC). The Council now focuses on environmental projects which involve public education and public awareness, while partnering with different sectors of the Niagara Community.||en_US|
