Consultation goal

The Government of Canada, through Environment and Climate Change Canada and support from Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, is seeking public input on freshwater challenges in Canada and how a Canada Water Agency can further protections for Canada’s freshwater resources.

Over the course of this consultation, we will be publishing discussion aids and posing specific questions on our PlaceSpeak site to find out what Canadians would like to see in this new Agency and how we can further protections for Canada’s most important resource.
