"While a shortage of water is not an imminent issue facing Canada, the overall demand by the natural resource sectors is increasing," said round-table vice-chair Mark Parent.

"This represents an opportunity for Canada to get ahead of a future problem, and proactively take steps toward sustainable water governance and management."
