Summary in English
Water is essential for all living creatures and is an important component of countless human activities. Canada has an extensive reserve of freshwater. Yet water may be scarce in some places or of unsuitable quality for some purposes. Growing human demands for water are sure to add further constraints on this resource. And changes in natural forces, such as potential climate change, can also affect the supply and distribution of water. It is therefore essential that we examine the state of water quantity and quality in Canada and devise ways to manage our water resources sustainably.
