Presentation by CELA Executive Director Theresa McClenaghan on Canadian Water Legislation.
On April 7, 2022, the Government of Canada released the budget for 2022-2023, “A Plan to Grow Our Economy and Make Life More Affordable.”
The budget contains several proposals and updates on federal freshwater programs. Highlights include: clean drinking water for First Nations communities, freshwater protections, and monitoring of plastic waste in water systems.
This Toolkit has been created to pair critically urgent environmental issues with legal mechanisms for change and public advocacy. It has been developed with and for Indigenous and settler communities, and individuals throughout Northern Ontario. It is meant to be a foundational resource so that both individuals and practitioners can have ready access to solutions for environmental health issues.
Monthly check-ins that scan the water policy landscape in Ontario.
