AbstractCanada is a very large confederation composed of 13 different jurisdictions; each jurisdiction manages water resources separately. There is no Canadian water policy; rather, there are water laws and water regulations for each jurisdiction and, until very recently not every jurisdiction had groundwater regulations. A common vision for groundwater resources assessment and management is slowly emerging.
