Glenn Benoy

Fellow, CRI

Dr. Glenn Benoy is the Senior Water Quality and Ecosystem Adviser with the Canadian Section of the International Joint Commission (IJC) in Ottawa, Ontario. Dr. Benoy is responsible for advising the IJC on water quality-related issues that concern rivers and lakes and their watersheds that straddle the border between Canada and the United States. While approximately 40% of the border is water, almost the remainder of it falls within a transboundary watershed. The dominant water quality issues facing many boundary waters are eutrophication, aquatic invasive species and the alteration of natural flow regimes. His research interests include integrated water resources management, water quality modelling and sustainable agriculture. Prior to joining the IJC, Dr. Benoy held a joint research scientist position in aquatic landscape ecology with Environment and Climate Change Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Fredericton, New Brunswick. After completing his PhD at the University of Guelph in aquatic ecology and wildlife science, he was a post-doctoral fellow at the National Hydrology Research Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
