Strengthening the Resilience of the Canadian Water Sector

This research presents a risk profile for the Canadian water sector and concludes that there were five perceived risks among water regulators and operators: physical access, cyber-related, water supply, other uncertain risks, and infrastructure-related. Using Renn’s (2008) classification of risks, recommendations are provided to help the water sector address these risks.
