Strengthening the Resilience of the Canadian Water Sector - Final Report

The project goal was to develop and conduct a National Survey of the Water Sector to create a National Risk Profile that can be used collaboratively by CWWA and PSC. A research study has been conducted using quantitative and qualitative methods to assess the state of preparedness of the water sector and make recommendations for concrete measures that can be taken to enhance resilience. The purpose was to identify policies and practices water utilities can adopt in the short and medium term to ensure a safer, more secure and resilient water supply to Canadians.
