Water Research

Within Environment Canada, a number of groups play particularly prominent roles in water-related research that benefit all jurisdictions in Canada and many partners internationally. These include:

In addition, the Government of Canada has water-related expertise in its other science-focused departments; for example, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Natural Resources Canada, Health Canada, and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada). Agencies and institutions such as the Canadian International Development Agency and the International Development Research Centre play key roles in supporting and disseminating research that is relevant to water management internationally.

Canada's universities are the base for substantial amounts of research into water issues, as are the research facilities of provincial and territorial governments. Departments within Canada's federal, provincial, and territorial governments work individually and collaboratively on an extensive range of issues.
