At the August 5-7, 2009 annual meeting of the Council of the Federation in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada’s premiers agreed to implement a nation-wide water efficiency labeling program. This program is intended to reduce water consumption by informing consumers of the most efficient products on the market.

The premiers also agreed to create a Council of the Federation Water Stewardship Council based on the already existing Council in Western Canada. The Council of the Federation Water Stewardship Council will focus its work on water efficiency and conservation and will report to the premiers at their next summer meeting.

  1. It’s great to see that our Government would like to protect water but are our Premiers really on board? If so why would logging be scheduled for the Castle Special Management Area in Alberta which supplies almost 1/3 of the water to the Oldman River Basin; a necessary source of water for SW Alberta. Is it not important to protect these very valuable watersheds?

    It is very important for people and industry to reduce water consumption. But let’s make sure that we have water sources left to manage.
