It takes a watershed

DataStream works across sectors and jurisdictions to transform collaborative water stewardship in Canada.



Where we work

DataStream is active in five regions from coast to coast. Our data hubs are delivered in collaboration with regional monitoring networks.

All regions

Our regional data hubs bring water quality data together across sectors and jurisdictions — in standardized, accessible formats that make it easier to discover and use.

Community-based monitoring

If we’re going to keep pace with climate change and other threats, we need to do things differently

Community-based monitoring (CBM) mobilizes energy, engagement and knowledge from the ground up to protect the freshwater ecosystems on which we all depend. These programs are generating much-needed information on watershed health. And, when brought together, this data can generate powerful new insights across distances and timescales that are beyond the scope of any single monitoring initiative.


Convening

DataStream brings diverse groups together to support collaborative and inclusive approaches to water issues.
