CWRA facilitates discussion among water users and water resource professionals. The perspectives can be from the private and public sectors in hydrology, irrigation and drainage, biology to climate change and education. CWRA has active Student and Young Professionals section with Scholarship and mentoring programs. We also support Water Education for Teachers through project WET. There are affiliates dealing with education, hydrology or water and agriculture.

We organize conferences, symposiums and workshops dealing with a wide range of water issues, quarterly publish the Canadian Water Resources Journal since 1976 and the newsletter, Water News, as well as publishing papers and reports. We maintain a website with CWRA documents and proceedings from conferences and workshops.

The individual Branches provide a unique local perspective on water management and needs across our diverse country. The Branch volunteers provide other CWRA members with local knowledge of water-related activities through website updates, newsletters, workshops and conferences. The Canadian Committee on Irrigation and Drainage (CANCID) of the CWRA is the link between agriculture and water across Canada and with the International Committee on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID). The Canadian Society for Hydrologic Sciences (CSHS) is a society of the CWRA and represents the members who are interested in the hydrologic issues of Canadian water. The Students and Young Professionals (SYP) are made up of a diverse and active group of students and young professionals from a wide range of academic disciplines and have chapters located in most major cities across the country. The chapters welcome any and all students interested in water issues. Project WET or “Water Education for Teachers” delivers hands on workshops that connect children, parents, educators and communities with water education that promotes the appreciation and stewardship of water resources.

Providing the natural systems of water resources with a common voice is important for our future and the CWRA is well positioned to accomplish that.
