Toward a Canadian National Water Strategy
2008 Final Report - Rob de Loe

Significant threats to water resources exist across Canada. Climate change is an emerging challenge in all parts of the country, but numerous long term problems also exist, with serious implications for Canada’s environment, economy and society. The process outlined in this report begins with the formation of a leadership team, comprised of people who can speak to the needs, concerns and interests of the various stakeholder groups identified by or in the report.

Toward a Canadian National Water Strategy

Posted: June 18, 2008

This report, commissioned by the CWRA with funding from the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation, was authored by Professor Rob de Loë of the University of Guelph. It sets out the benefits for effective and efficient management of water that flow from a coherent, comprehensive, and facilitative national framework for water management.
