Environmental Sector Expectations for Regulations under BC’s Water Sustainability Act

June 2015

This statement of expectations for regulations under B.C.'s Water Sustainability Act was spurred by a May 2015 workshop that was attended by a diversity of individuals working on issues related to water sustainability. Attendees represented First Nation groups, watershed boards, funding organizations, stewardship groups, and academia. The stakeholders expect that that the 7 key areas of improvement outlined in the Province's WSA legislative proposal will be translated into regulations to realize the full potential of the WSA. The 7 overarching expectations include:

  1. Protect stream health and aquatic environments,
  2. Improve security, water use efficiency and conservation, and 
  3. Provide for a range of governance opportunities.
