In the period February 2006 to October 2006, water experts from government agencies, the private sector, academia and non-governmental organizations gathered for a progressive series of five workshops on water policy in Canada. The Water Policy in Canada: National Workshop Series was organized by Pollution Probe in cooperation with a wide range of government and nongovernmental
sponsors and partners. The workshops took place in Winnipeg (February 2006), Lethbridge (March 2006), Wolfville (April 2006), Guelph (June 2006) and Moncton (October 2006), benefiting from almost 70 expert presentations and the input of several hundred participants.
Based on this comprehensive review and the wealth of information and perspectives that were presented and discussed, Pollution Probe has worked to synthesize this information and to turn it into a concise and progressive Vision and Strategy, titled, A New Approach to Water Management in Canada.
