Changing the Flow (6MB)
Executive Summary

Au Courant(6MB)
Sommaire

Changing the Flow: A Blueprint for Federal Action on Freshwater builds on mounting calls for renewed federal action on water from a diverse range of groups and sectors. 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:

Priority 1: Enhancing National Capacity for Freshwater Protection

Priority 2: Responding to the Impacts of Climate Change and Energy Production

Priority 3: Securing Safe Drinking Water for All Canadians

Priority 4: Protecting Aquatic Ecosystems and Aboriginal Water Rights

Priority 5: Promoting a Culture of Water Conservation

Priority 6: Preventing Interjurisdictional Conflicts and Bulk Water Exports

Priority 7: 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 the entire cabinet of the federal government, to every federal Member of Parliament, to all federal Senators, and to key decision-makers in provincial, territorial and Aboriginal governments.

In addition to informing government actions, it is hoped that this blueprint will significantly contribute to the public dialogue that has so many Canadians expressing their concern that our most precious resource, the one we cannot live without, is under threat. Please visit the Forum for Leadership on Water's webpage to follow current dialogue on the Canada-wide water strategy movement.
