What We Do
Network members lie at the heart of everything we do at Our Living Waters. Our FIVE KEY SERVICES are designed to catalyze collaboration between Network members and support the freshwater community in making a splash!

1) Shared Measurement: A tool that provides a north star and navigational system on the path to achieving the ambitious goal of all waters in Canada in good health by 2030. The Shared Measurement System helps Network members see how their work contributes to our common agenda.


2) Network Priorities: The OLW Network is as wise as you, our members! Each year, Network members determine which aspects of the shared measurement system are priorities for collaborative action through an Annual Priorities survey.


3) Network Weaving: Let’s work together to build meaningful connections in the water community! We host Member Meetups, distribute monthly e-news, tell our Impact Stories, and help Network members connect with each other in French and English.


4) OLW Strategic Collaboration Fund: Funding often creates a bottleneck between network connections and collaborative action. The OLW Strategic Collaboration Fund addresses the need for reliable and dedicated support for large scale collaborations to work on shared water goals.


5) Teams: Our Teams are where the magic happens at Our Living Waters! Through facilitation and coordination, we support these collaborative forums so that Network members can take collective action on specific Network priorities and move towards achieving a shared goal.


We’re only an email away and we’re always open to hearing your ideas for creatively improving these key services!
