Description:

In 2011, the Council of the Federation established the Water Stewardship Council (WSC). The purpose of the WSC is to: Provide information and strategic advice to Premiers on key trends, issues and opportunities related to Canada's water resources; and Promote, and where appropriate, implement the commitments of the 2010 Council of the Federation Water Charter. Engaging various water partners is a critical element of the WSC's work. To this end, the Water Partner Advisory Committee (WPAC) was formed in 2011, with representation from across Canada and across various sectors. The WPAC provides advice to the WSC and a linkage to non-governmental led water activity. WSC initiatives include: World Water Day / Canada Water Week Provinces and territories are collaborating to develop and promote activities for World Water Day (March 22, 2013) and Canada Water Week (March 18-25, 2013). In order to bring recognition to achievements, innovative practice and leadership in the area of water stewardship, the Council of the Federation Excellence in Water Stewardship Awards have been established. Thirteen awards, one for each province and territory, will be awarded on World Water Day to recognize the outstanding contributions of organizations, partnerships, businesses, institutions, and community groups.
