The Parks Canada TSW ‘Mandate’

There have been many questions asked requesting the specifics of under what official 'mandate' does TSW operate. CEWF has researched this in detail; to read the report –  click here.

Per this report's Summary, it is a complex, imprecise situation:

"…there is no single document that contains a legally-binding mandate for the TSW or for its water management activities.

Instead there is extensive documentation, from legal requirements, to ‘non-mandate obligations’, to operational guidelines, that touch upon aspects of TSW’s responsibilities…"

The Coalition proposes that the TSW consider articulating its broad mandate in a single public document, possibly as an activity under the MOU with Ontario.
