Strengthening the Resilience of the Canadian Water Sector
In 2016, under the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP), the CWWA began a partnership with the MacEachen Institute for Public Policy and Governance, Dalhousie University, to assess risk and resiliency practices in the water sector. By the end of this year, we will issue a report that details our research findings, and includes a risk profile for the sector and makes recommendations on how to improve the resiliency of the sector.
In the coming weeks, we will invite representatives from selected water utilities and regulators to participate in one-on-one interviews to discuss risk and resilience challenges and opportunities for the sector. If your organization is invited to participate in a one-on-one interview, we strongly encourage you to accept. In the Spring, and following the completion of the one-on-one interviews, we will launch a national survey, open to all CWWA members. We encourage CWWA members to take part in the survey once it is released, to ensure that our research accurately represents the sector as a whole.
