Every Shoreland Matters. Every Action Counts.
What is Watersheds Canada?
Watersheds Canada is a federally incorporated non-profit organization and registered Canadian charity (863555223 RR 0001). We are committed to providing programs to communities across the country that work to engage and help shoreline owners enhance and protect the health of lakes and rivers.
People engaged and caring for clean, healthy lakes and rivers that sustain humans and wildlife for years to come.
In partnership with others, Watersheds Canada protects and restores freshwater through the development and delivery of adaptive and resilient solutions and programs.
Watersheds Canada is an equal opportunity organization that does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, or sexual orientation.
We love our lakes and rivers, and work to support the health and beauty of our freshwater by embracing the following values:
Integrity & Accountability
We meet our deliverables by transforming action into results with an honest, reliable, positive and professional attitude.
Inclusivity & Respect
We thrive when working with others of all backgrounds, taking into account the uniqueness of each partnership.
Innovation & Sustainability
We continually adapt and improve our programs to ensure long-term benefits while considering not only the environment, but also the economy and society.
Community & Collaboration
We support and encourage the development of others within the environmental field by sharing our resources, including, knowledge, expertise, lessons learned, and fundraising successes.
Our work depends on partnerships at lake, river and watershed levels, ensuring that our programs are focused and offer real service.
Our work is grounded in the local knowledge and efforts of our community partners.
We add value to partnerships and local knowledge by linking with science and other expertise, sharing best practices, offering training, and providing logistical support.
