7 Public information

There are a number of ways in which Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and its many collaborators provide information on the use and conservation of water. Many of these activities are discussed throughout this report, including in the section on ecosystem initiatives.

The Government of Canada’s Water website provides content on ECCC’s water-related activities and program areas as well as general information on a wide range of water-related topics and the full text of key water publications (such as the Great Lakes–St. Lawrence River water levels). In addition, the site provides links to laws and regulations.

Wateroffice provides public access to real-time and archived hydrometric data collected in Canada. In 2017-2018, the Wateroffice website received over 74 million hits and nearly 2.1 million visits.

In 2017-2018, the datamart hydrometric folder received over 232 million hits.
