As the country faces increasingly extreme floods, droughts, fires and water pollution events that are hammering our infrastructure and economy and affecting the well-being of millions of Canadians each year, the Global Water Futures program and partners are convening a national discussion on the future of water security in Canada. This event will bring together water and climate scientists, policy experts, legislators, and water decision rightsholders and stakeholders. Panelists will speak to the scientific evidence of the worsening water sustainability and climate-related water crisis in Canada, and the science and policy solutions needed to adapt to the new climate and water realities across the country. All participants will contribute to a timely discussion on how to create a better, safer and more secure water world for ourselves and for our children, while positioning Canada as an international leader in global water security expertise, science, prediction and advice.

This event is co-hosted by: Global Water Futures, University of Saskatchewan, the Forum for Leadership on Water, the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources, the POLIS Program on Ecological Governance, and the United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health Dress Code: Please be aware that the Rideau Club requires the following attire:For men: smart, casual tailored trousers or pants; jacket optional but recommended; shirts with collars and sleeves and turtleneck sweaters.  For women: smart, casual tailored trousers or pants; skirts; collared shirts; collarless shirts; blouses and sleeveless summer dress.  Not permitted: faded, torn or worn casual trouser/pant or any trouser/pant that sits below the natural waistline, cargo pants, t-shirt, shorts, sweatshirts, athletic shoes, opened toed shoes for men, casual sandals for women, any apparel with slogans or commercial message.
