Changing Currents: Water Sustainability and the Future of Canada’s Natural Resource Sectors

Changing Currents: Water Sustainability and the Future of Canada’s Natural Resource Sectors

Ratings: (0)|Views: 36 |Likes:
National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (2010 Report)

In June 2010, the NRTEE released Changing Currents: Water Sustainability and the Future of Canada’s Natural Resource Sectors. This report provides a description of the relationship between Canada’s natural resource sectors and water, focusing on the current and emerging key water issues facing the sectors.

The world’s supply of freshwater is limited and finite. While Canada is blessed with an abundance of freshwater, an expected increase in the development of the natural resource sectors begs the question of whether our country has enough to support economic growth while also maintaining the health of our ecosystems. We need to know whether we are in a position to sustainably manage our water resources for future generations and if we have the capability to deal with issues like an anticipated change in precipitation patterns caused by climate change.
