By 2030, all freshwater ecosystems in British Columbia will be in good health as a result of world-class leadership in watershed governance


The BC Freshwater Legacy Initiative advances this vision by supporting projects that bring together governments, water users and community interests at the watershed scale to make better decisions for the benefit of water, and everything that depends on it.

This is a critical time for strengthening water protections in the province and, in the process, forging new partnerships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous governments in support of reconciliation and new models of shared governance.

As our common life source, fresh water is a truly collective resource. By working together, we can achieve a more sustainable future for our shared home waters. This is the essence of watershed governance, and the inspiration behind the BC Freshwater Legacy Initiative.
