Waterlution - A water learning experience
Waterlution's purpose is to inspire pattern-making and pattern-breaking change towards a healthy and sustainable relationship with water.
Waterlution is a registered non-profit corporation that works across Canada and internationally, where strong local partnerships exist. We engage diverse individuals, organizations and communities in the exploration of creative management solutions that respect water and the broader ecosystem. Waterlution understands that everyone has a vested interest in water. We work to promote awareness and provide opportunities for collaboration towards long-term, inclusive management solutions.
Through our community-based “The Future of Water Workshop Series”, custom learning programs and cross-Canada Waterlution Hub Network, we offer experiential learning opportunities and collaboration platforms for young Canadians to develop the inspiration, motivation, contacts, knowledge and understanding needed to affect real change across a variety of sectors, mechanisms and projects.

Waterlution’s vision is for the next generation of decision-makers - across all sectors and stakeholder groups - to be strong, informed leaders with a passion for and commitment to healthy watersheds.
We use a systems approach in designing and conducting our work.
Our approach is based on the understanding that deep systemic change happens as individuals build understanding (across viewpoints and cultures), share knowledge, and develop broader perspectives through open, cross-silo dialogue. A resource that touches us all, water is a natural connecting point around which diverse individuals and groups can come together to find commonalities and engage in meaningful dialogue. We encourage Canadians to explore inclusive, creative water management approaches, providing the process and space to foster inclusive, multi-stakeholder dialogue.
