website banner coins in water

Join us for a new webinar series highlighting state-of-the-art water valuation practices in Canada and identifying practitioners’ demand for information about the value of water.

The webinar series targets anyone from academia to non-government agencies and practitioners who are interested in better understanding the value of water in Canada from a broad social science perspective, and how this value is captured, acknowledged and integrated in Canadian water policy and decision-making.

The webinars take place once per month, on a Wednesday, and start at 9:00 am PST / 12:00 pm EST.

Please register for the webinars below individually. Once you've registered, you will receive a Zoom invitation and a reminder 24hrs before the webinar.
