2017 Conference Banner

 2017 National Conference

The 2017 Conference will explore how water has been exploited, managed, protected, and shared as it crosses jurisdictional boundaries in North America. The program will address the best (and worst) approaches and solutions to interjurisdictional water management on the continent, with a view to influencing future public policy.  During the registration process, you will be able to select from multiple day, single day, welcome barbeque, tours, and workshops. 


Why not extend your CWRA National Conference experience and join us for one or more of the following pre- and post- conference workshops!  Select your workshop through the registration page.

Principles of Hydrologic Modelling UW Graduate Course and Professional Short Course

The course is over 50% full, Register, now!

Presented by CSHS
June 19-24, 2017
This course addresses the development of computational models of watershed hydrology in support of water resources management and scientific investigation. The full model development and application cycle is considered: pre-processing, understanding, and generating input forcing data; system discretization and algorithms for simulating hydrologic processes; parameter estimation; and interpreting model output in the context of often significant system uncertainty. The course will include practical applications of models to alpine, boreal forest, prairie, and agricultural settings in Canada.


CANCID and the CWRA present the 

2018 International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID) Conference

Canadian National Committee on Irrigation and Drainage (CANCID)

Canadian Water Resources Association (CWRA)

Innovative and Sustainable Agri-water Management: 
Adapting to a Variable and Changing Climate

On behalf of the Canadian Water Resources Association (CWRA) and the Canadian Committee for Irrigation and Drainage (CANCID), we would like to welcome you to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the heart of the Canadian Prairies! Surrounded by close to 25 million hectares of farm land in the Province of Saskatchewan, the agriculture and the agri-food sectors drive this economy. Saskatoon is home to world class agriculture research and education institutions that support sustainable innovations in agriculture. Managing water effectively is key to sustainable agriculture for ensuring food and water security and for creating greater resiliency to climate variability. The theme of the 69th annual ICID conference, “Innovative and Sustainable Agri-water Management: Adapting to a Variable and Changing Climate,” will focus on these issues and more.

Saskatoon is a relatively young city: a city of arts, culture, food and drink. But you have only to scratch the surface to immerse yourself in centuries of deep cultural heritage from First Nations’ traditions to the early days of settlement. Weaving through the city, witness to these important and historical changes, is the beautiful South Saskatchewan River Valley.

CWRA and CANCID are honoured to host the 69th Annual ICID Executive Council Meeting and International Conference.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018!

Dave Murray  National President, CWRA                           Roger Holm  President, CANCID
