Nipissing University’s Integrative Watershed Research Centre aims to promote and support integrative research on watersheds and related environmental issues in our region of northeastern Ontario and beyond. The watershed is used here as a boundary object, uniting our members across many disciplines and perspectives to focus development of research ideas, collaborations and partnerships. Members of the centre are actively engaged in research projects including the exploration of environmental history and colonialism in the Lake Nipissing watershed, water cycling studies in the Sturgeon Falls-Lake Nipissing – French River basin, study of the occurrence of harmful algae blooms in Lake Nipissing, and the exploration of the lived experience of water quality risk in Anishnaabe communities in northern Ontario. On this website you will find information on ongoing research projects and participants.
