Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission
The Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC) is an inter-tribal, co-management agency committed to the implementation of off-reservation treaty rights on behalf of its eleven Ojibwe member tribes. Formed in 1984 and exercising authority specifically delegated by its member tribes, GLIFWC's mission is to help ensure significant, off-reservation harvests while protecting the resources for generations to come. map
GLIFWC's policy is set by the Board of Commissioners composed of the tribal chairperson from each member tribe or a designee. Two standing committees, the Voigt Intertribal Task Force and the Great Lakes Fisheries Committee, make recommendations on resource management policies to the board. GLIFWC has six divisions including Administration, Biological Services, Enforcement, Intergovernmental Affairs, Planning & Development, and Public Information.
