Water

Very few Canadians can appreciate the scale of looming global water difficulties — virtually every population centre of any size in the country sits beside a lake or river of seemingly inexhaustible proportions. Yet the use of Canadian water requires calm consideration now, before decisions are forced upon us by urgent political demand or natural crisis. Water is essential, and the water resource is therefore a social opportunity. 

The Institute is working with the Water Research Group and the Trans-border Research University Network (TRUN)  on issues of water governance.
