Rethinking our Water Ways

Rethinking our Water Ways is an initiative of the Fraser Basin Council to highlight the challenges of
managing BC’s watersheds and water resources sustainably, particularly in the face of climate change
and increased demand for water.

Do you have a responsibility for water in your community or region? Is your sector dependent on water for your work? Are you concerned about the sustainability of watersheds? Check our water guide and a synopsis of related workshops.

The Guide

Learn about water and watershed planning in BC on the website Rethinking our Water Ways. The guide is also available in PDF.

Regional Workshops Wrap-up

Five regional workshops on water and watershed planning were hosted by FBC in Prince George, 100 Mile House, Salmon Arm, Chilliwack and New Westminster between September 2011 and January 2012. You’ll find a wrap-up report and speaker presentations on the Rethinking our Water Ways website.

Senior Program Manager Steve Litke has been invited to discuss the guide and collaborative watershed management on other occasions, most recently for the Elk River Alliance, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary and the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable.

The Rethinking our Water Ways guide and website received funding support from the BC Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Canada's Regional Adaptation Collaborative program. The regional workshops received funding from the Fraser Salmon and Watersheds Program, Environment Canada and the Real Estate Foundation of BC.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
