The Constitutional Context of Canadian Water Planning

  • Dale Gibson

Abstract

Water resource management in Canada involves both the federal and provincial constitutional powers. The result has been a complex administration which is both poorly co-ordinated and confusing. In order to explain the features of the present structure the author examines the federal and provincial powers involved. He concludes by advocating the replacement of federal and provincial control by a basin-oriented system of resource management which is feasible under the existing constitution.
