Canada Water Act annual report for 2020 to 2021: chapter 4

4 Water quality and quantity indicators

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues including climate change and air quality, water quality and availability, and protecting nature. The water quality and water quantity in Canadian Rivers indicators are usually highlighted in this section; however, these 2 indicators were not published during 2020-2021. Updated water quality data were published on the Open Data platform during 2020-2021 as part of other water-related indicator updates. Indicators for phosphorus loadings in Lake Winnipeg and Lake Erie were released November and October 2020, respectively (see Section 7.1, Figure 6 and Section 7.2, Figure 7).
