Corkal Diaz Sauchyn 2011 Changing roles in Canadian water management a case study of agriculture and water in Canadas South Saskatchewan River Basin

Canada is perceived by many to be water-rich, yet renewable fresh water supply is a
limiting factor. The southern, most-populated region of the country has about “2.6 percent
of the world water supply”(Sprague, 2007, p. 25). Semi-arid areas experience water
shortages, and increasing demands for water have led to moratoriums in water allocations.
