DataStream at the 2018 Living Waters Rally

October 11, 2018

This workshop was a precursor to an upcoming national roundtable discussion being convened in November by The Gordon Foundation, WWF-Canada and Living Lakes Canada. This session helped identify a number of valuable recommendations that will be further discussed at the November roundtable. More information about this event will be available in coming weeks.

Wela'lin, Chi Miigwetch, Thank you!

We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Living Waters Rally organizers, the team that helped us put together and facilitate our sessions, and all the participants who came out and shared their knowledge and experience. We left the rally inspired by all the amazing work that is happening across the country and excited for new opportunities to collaborate as we move forward together in stewarding our shared waters.
