This statement of support for B.C.’s Water Sustainability Act and its regulations was the result of an October 2014 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. This statement focuses on the need for the provincial government to:
- Ensure meaningful and adequate engagement with First Nations, and
- Provide sufficient resources for implementation of the B.C. Water Sustainability Act.
