Annual Summit Sponsor

The Great Lakes Economic Forum brings together hundreds of key business leaders, government executives, lawmakers, leading academics and advocates from non-governmental organizations from the eight Great Lakes states and the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. These key players share ideas and insights on major economic issues facing the Great Lakes-St.Lawrence Region with the goal of creating more favourable conditions for business, improving the region’s ability to compete in today’s borderless climate of global trade and investment and ensuring the long-term prosperity and well-being of Americans and Canadians living in the region.

Sponsorships are available at all levels of visibility: Platinum ($20,000), Gold ($15,000), Silver ($10,000), Bronze ($5,000) and supporter ($2,500). Please contact Mark Fisher, President and CEO of CGLR, at for specific details.

Event and Working Group Sponsors

Throughout the year, CGLR hosts roundtables and other special events with partners throughout the region to raise awareness of cross-border issues, share knowledge and build relationships between industry, government, lawmakers, academia and NGOs. CGLR will also convene multi-disciplinary stakeholder groups to research regional economic policy issues, develop solutions and provide non-partisan advice to governments.

Please contact if you would like to host an event with CGLR or pose an idea for a working group.
