Water Connects Us

Water Connects Us


Water connects us to each other and to the environment in an intricate web of balancing needs.

Water hydrates us, offers enjoyment and beauty, and provides habitat. It is important for culture and recreation. Water allows us to run our businesses, to raise healthy families, and to grow our food.

Water is not bound by jurisdictional boundaries or borders. It flows throughout the environment, connecting neighbours, communities, and regions to the watersheds in which they thrive!

Collaborative partnerships across regions, governments, and communities, bridge the gaps in effective water management and secures the environmental protection of local watersheds.
