Community Engagement and the Water Sustainability Act

Join us for this webinar where we'll examine the role of the freshwater community, rights holders and stakeholders in shaping BC's new Water Sustainability Act (WSA). We'll also explore what role the freshwater community could play in the development of future regulations, and how we can better position ourselves to play a meaningful role in the development and implementation of the WSA.


Guest speakers include:

Kiely McFarlane is a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia, where she studies issues related to water governance. Ashlee Jollymore is also a PhD candidate at UBC, studying the relationship between ecohydrology and urban sustainability. Kiely and Ashlee have analyzed the consultation and engagement process that informed the development of the WSA with an eye to how input was integrated into the Act.
