At Canadian Water Network, success happens when the right people and leading knowledge are combined to identify what's possible to achieve shared goals for water management in Canada. Canadian Water Network convenes government, industry and non-governmental partners around core challenges, and connects them with leading knowledge in a way that addresses the practical realities of water management. We ensure that research is actionable and leads to solutions.
