Changing the Flow: A Blueprint for Federal Action on Freshwater

Changing the Flow: A Blueprint for Federal Action on Freshwater builds on mounting calls from a diverse range of groups and sectors for renewed federal action on water. It establishes what we believe is a compelling case for urgent actions to be undertaken by our federal government, and provides clear and concise direction through 25 recommended actions organized around seven priority areas:

  • Enhancing National Capacity for Freshwater Protection
  • Responding to the Impacts of Climate Change and Energy Production
  • Securing Safe Drinking Water for All Canadians
  • Protecting Aquatic Ecosystems and Aboriginal Water Rights
  • Promoting a Culture of Water Conservation
  • Preventing Interjurisdictional Conflicts and Bulk Water Exports
  • Developing World Class Water Science

This blueprint is directed at federal decision-makers and influential policy advisors. Copies of this blueprint have been distributed to every federal Member of Parliament, all federal Senators, and key decision-makers in provincial, territorial and Aboriginal governments.
