OTTAWA, Oct. 29, 2013 /CNW/ - The Council of the Federation (COF) Water
Stewardship Council announced today the launch for nominations for the
2014 Excellence in Water Stewardship Award. The award recognizes and
celebrates outstanding achievement and innovative practice and
leadership in the area of water stewardship. The award is presented to
organizations, partnerships, businesses, institutions, municipalities
and community groups.
The Excellence in Water Stewardship Award builds on the COF Water Charter. The Charter was endorsed by Premiers in 2010, and guides the work of
the Water Stewardship Council. It recognizes the collective obligation
of Canadians and their governments to promote water conservation and
protect water quality.
The COF will announce the award recipients on March 17, 2014 at the
beginning of Canada Water Week. There will be one recipient in each
province and territory.
The Water Stewardship Council provides information and strategic advice
to Premiers on key trends, issues and opportunities related to Canada's
water resources, and where appropriate, implements the commitments of
the Water Charter.
