Watershed Reports

The first-ever nationwide assessment of Canada’s watersheds reveals our freshwater ecosystems are at risk.

Years of research by WWF-Canada — with help from 171 community organizations groups, water agencies, First Nations, researchers, governments and industry — found significant disturbances from hydropower dams, agricultural runoff, pulp and paper processing, fragmentation, urbanization, pipeline incidents, oil and gas development and other activities.

At the same time, massive data deficiencies for health indicators prevent an informed understanding of the impact of these human activities on watersheds.

Read the report or explore watershedreports.wwf.ca to learn more about the state of the Canada’s watersheds — including your own.
