AbstractThis paper summarises a new book: The "Groundwater Resources in Canada." The book represents the first integrated synthesis of knowledge on the groundwater resources of Canada since 1969. The purpose of this book is to provide a science-based overview and a collective understanding of the groundwater resources in Canada to support sustainable use and protection.
This summary highlights what we know about the groundwater resources in Canada and also the gaps in knowledge we still need to fill in. It includes groundwater management and governance, emerging issues and perspectives on groundwater resources. The synthesis discusses key Canadian aquifers, transboundary aquifers, groundwater availability, as well as issues of groundwater governance and management in Canada.
