Abstract
Canada has one of the largest freshwater supplies in the world, yet it does not have a national level vision or strategy for water. Water-related challenges in Canada, driven by climate change, urbanization, population growth and water pollution, pose a serious threat to Canada's sustainable development. The absence of a national water vision in Canada has led to fragmented, unsustainable and inadequate, water management across Canada. To better understand the obstacles and opportunities of a national water vision for Canada, this study applied a qualitative approach by interviewing water policy experts from across Canada. The findings of this study are intended to highlight the need for a national water vision and provide recommendation to support the development of a national water vision in Canada.
