Canadian Federal Legislation
While provincial and territorial governments have the primary
responsibility for managing and protecting water quality,
including the provision and regulation of drinking water and
wastewater services, the federal government is responsible
for ensuring the safety of drinking water within areas of
federal jurisdiction, such as national parks and Aboriginal
reserves. It also plays a significant role in protecting water
quality by regulating toxic substances, conducting water quality
research, and promoting pollution prevention. Click here
