The restoration progress in Thunder Bay is undergoes an early stage compared with southern Ontario. The four restoration projects and plans of this study were all initiate under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, Thunder Bay Area of Concern.

There will be a increasingly number of restoration projects within 20 years, and the majority of the restorations will focus on the stormwater management and watershed protection.
