Toward a Canadian National Water Strategy
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.

National Flood Guidelines Draft Document

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.
