What issues should a freshwater agency for Canada address? Have your say.

The Government of Canada is creating a new Canada Water Agency to work together with the provinces, territories, Indigenous communities, local authorities, scientists and communities to find the best ways to keep our water safe, clean and well-managed.

Upcoming events open for public participation regarding the creation of a new Canada Water Agency:

National Freshwater Policy Forum 

Jan 27 and 28th, 2021
The National Freshwater Policy Forum will provide an opportunity to hear from leading practitioners and knowledge holders involved in managing and protecting freshwater on what they see as the greatest opportunities to improve freshwater management through the creation of a Canada Water Agency. The two-day virtual event will involve discussions of key freshwater issues and opportunities identified in the Discussion Paper “Toward the Creation of a Canada Water Agency.”  

Regional Freshwater Forums

A series of six Regional Freshwater Forums will be held across the country to engage stakeholders and the interested public on region-specific freshwater issues and provide an opportunity for participants to discuss their thoughts on opportunities to improve freshwater management through the creation of a Canada Water Agency. Each forum will be a half-day virtual event. Join a panel of regional experts, practitioners and knowledge holders in a discussion of regional freshwater issues and participate in breakout sessions for more in-depth dialogue on the discussion questions and opportunities outlined in the Discussion Paper “Toward the Creation of a Canada Water Agency.”
