CWRA is coordinating a response and comments from our membership following the final draft national flood guidelines prepared for Natural Resources Canada and Public Safety Canada (delivered April 19, 2016).  CWRA's response is scheduled to be collected and delivered during May - June, 2016.  A team of key CWRA flood experts from across the country is reviewing but we are also actively seeking comments from all CWRA members on or before May 27, 2016. Links to the draft document, a background summary and comment form are listed here and can also be found on the CWRA homepage. Please forward comments This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

CWRA is also preparing a position paper on this topic and is currently seeking input for ideas and content of this document. CWRA and its members have a great opportunity to contribute to an informed discussion that will result in a national response framework for flood guidelines. We look forward to input from our members across Canada.

CSHS Professional Hydrology Certification Survey

The Canadian Society for Hydrological Sciences (CSHS) is currently exploring the level of interest among the hydrological and water resources community for professional hydrology certification in Canada. Several jurisdictions outside of Canada have already established a professional certification for hydrologists. One example is the American Institute of Hydrology. The results of this anonymous survey will be presented and discussed at the CSHS Annual General Meeting at the upcoming 2016 Canadian Water Resources Association (CWRA) Conference in Montreal on May 25. 
Results will also be posted to the CSHS website.
