Towards a Vision and Strategy for Water Management in Canada

 Pollution probe - report cover (april 2007)

Pollution Probe recently published Towards a Vision and Strategy for Water Management in Canada  This report is a synthesis of five workshops held across Canada in 2006, which involved participants from a wide cross section of sectors and regions, providing a comprehensive snapshot of the needs and opportunities that exist in terms of water management in Canada. It concludes by calling for a new approach to water management in Canada. Pollution Probe is now working on a relatively short document that will crisply set out a vision and strategy, including the next step policy measures it believes are needed to achieve this new approach.

The Water Policy in Canada: National Workshop Series was a progressive series of five byinvitation- only national workshops for decision makers, experts and key influencers. The series was organized by Pollution Probe in conjunction with a wide range of government and non-governmental partners. The workshops took place in Winnipeg (February 2006), Lethbridge (March 2006), Wolfville (April 2006), Guelph (June 2006) and Moncton (October 2006), benefiting from almost 70 expert presentations and the input of several hundred participants in total.
