Why freshwater matters: Our Living Waters and MEC

Our Living Waters (OLW) is a national water network that recognizes that achieving freshwater conservation requires the organization and alignment of diverse groups addressing freshwater issues. Outdoor retailer MEC is one organization deeply involved with OLW. We interviewed Meriko Kubota, MEC’s Director, Strategic Partnerships and Community Investment, to find out why freshwater is important in Canada and to MEC and its members.

What does conservation mean to you? Give Green Canada, a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform, and the Stewardship Centre for BC (SCBC) have come together with “Celebrating Stewardship Legacies”, a campaign to celebrate individuals who are working hard every day to help protect our land and water as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation.

Learning trip to Opaskwayak Cree Nation and Sherridon, Manitoba

Two weeks into my new role as Program Associate with Tides Canada working on the Northern Manitoba Food, Culture, and Community Collaborative (NMFCCC), I had the opportunity to go on the 2016 NMFCCC Learning Trip. The Collaborative’s fourth learning trip took us to Opaskwayak Cree Nation (OCN) and Sherridon for one week. The trip provides the Collaborative’s funders with an opportunity to get to know the community partners, learn about life in northern communities, and understand some of the challenges the people on the ground face.
