Last call to participate in community discussion for the City’s Canada Water Agency Initiative

Thursday, December 9, 2021

The Government of Canada is establishing a Canada Water Agency to improve freshwater management across the country and Sault Ste. Marie would be an ideal location for such an Agency. A Canada Water Agency location would have a significant economic impact, including professional full-time jobs and significant economic investment.  
  
Throughout the past few months, the City of Sault Ste. Marie has partnered with the Lake Huron Collaborative’s Dr. Elaine Ho-Tassone to lead a series of eight community discussions. Participants have shared perspectives regarding having the Canada Water Agency in Sault Ste. Marie, as well as priorities and values for ensuring a water secure Algoma District. 
 
The final discussion in the series will be held virtually on Saturday, December 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This free event is available to Sault residents, Indigenous communities, and organizations within the District of Algoma. To register visit eventbrite.ca/e/ssm-canada-water-agency-community-discussion-all-community-members-tickets-212801423787 .  
 
Interested community members that are unable to attend can also submit their feedback and questions to CWAProject@cityssm.on.ca. To stay informed on Sault Ste. Marie’s Canada Water Agency Proposal development visit cwassm.ca. A final “What We Heard” report will be shared publicly in the New Year.
