WWF-Canada is committed to ensuring a healthy and resilient ecosystem in the Skeena River watershed. That includes basing our work on science and traditional knowledge for ecological wellbeing. Simultaneously, we recognize that long-term sustainability and resilience aren’t possible without economic sustainability, and the partnership of the Indigenous communities that call the region home.
SFU's Pacific Water Research Centre (PWRC) in the Faculty of Environment promotes and mobilize research that addresses water issues on multiple scales ranging from local communities to national to global. In pursuit of this vision, PWRC connects critical findings from science and social science research with local knowledge. By supporting cross-disciplinary exploration at the interface of water science, social values and public policy, the Centre provides a forum for advancing evidence-based research and concrete societal change.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
