Protecting Canada's water. Empowering Canada's North.

The Program on Water Issues

Part of the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, The Program on Water Issues (POWI) creates opportunities for members of the private, public, academic, and not-for-profit sectors to join in collaborative research, dialogue, and education.

The Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation helped found POWI in 2001, and continues to support its work in three main areas:

  • The Columbia River Treaty
  • Moving towards sustainable groundwater through inventories, mapping and monitoring
  • Prevention of interbasin transfer of bulk water
