Water Justice for a Water Secure Ontario

Water for Life, Not Profit

The Water Watchers invites you to join the People’s Water Campaign. The People’s Water Campaign is a broad-based campaign to restore environmental protections for water security and help build the movement for water justice in Ontario.

The People’s Water Campaign is reaching out to all communities working to achieve water justice in Ontario to:

🔹Determine urgent demands to which the Ontario government and opposition parties must commit to protect water in Ontario now
🔹Coordinate a campaign plan in support of these demands
🔹Develop a draft Declaration for Water Justice in Ontario

Phase 1 of the People's Water Campaign

In the first phase Wellington Water Watchers (WWW) is organizing four initiatives:

1. Outreach – WWW is contacting groups and communities involved in water protection to identify short-term priorities and long-term water justice goals

2. Water Webinars – WWW will host a series of webinars on topics relevant to ensuring Water is for Life, Not Profit. Topics will include:

  • Bottled water and plastic pollution
