About the Climate Summit

The Mushkegowuk Climate Summit (MCS) was an interdisciplinary climate change, wetlands and research gap summit for Hudson and James Bay Lowlands. MCS was hosted by the Mushkegowuk Council in Timmins, Ontario in the winter of 2016 and 2018, with the support of OMOECC, MNRF, MNDM, the Laurentian University Living with Lakes Centre, and the Canadian Network for Aquatic Ecosystem Services.

The Summits were a gathering of renowned researchers, scientists, Elders, youth, community members and community land use planners, along with environmental managers from the Mushkegowuk Tribal Council who shared their expertise on the health, conservation, and enhancement of the Hudson and James Bay Lowlands.
