Our Water BC

In order to ensure our waters are healthy and thriving for current and future generations, we need deeper and swifter action on the rules that impact the health of our freshwater.  

Our Water BC is a coalition of organizations, groups and individuals united in our efforts to leave a legacy for waters in British Columbia--our life source.

The Water Sustainability Act is an important tool to achieving our vision of healthy water for people and nature. We are committed to working with and holding the government of British Columbia accountable to the following actions while they develop and implement the next phases of regulations for the Water Sustainability Act.

  1. Water for nature (i.e., environmental flow needs) must be protected by regulation;

  2. Meaningful co-governance with First Nations and involvement of local communities in decision-making that affects their waters, with a short term outcome of three Water Sustainability Plans underway by 2018;

  3. Rigorous and transparent monitoring of water quality and quantity, beginning with a significant funding commitment in Budget 2018; and,

  4. Adequate funding for implementation, including action on promised plans to review commercial water use pricing.

Join us and together we can ensure the government of British Columbia defends our shared waters sign on your organizations here
