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-member Ojibwa 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.

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.

Although GLIFWC’s main focus is preserving the natural resources for generations to come, they are also committed to preserving the traditions and language of the Anishinaabe people.
