Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
This essay provides an overview of the state of knowledge and the managerial, institutional and jurisdictional groundwater issues in the world, and gives a perspective on the Canadian situation. The essay examines possible reasons for the ambivalence of potential water scarcity in a water-rich country. Groundwater resources are defined and short descriptions of associated, often confusing terms, such as quantity, availability, supply, use and sustainability are provided. The essay focuses on the "big picture" and how Canada fits into it, as well as what must be considered going forward to assure the sustainable use of groundwater.
