    Abstract In September of 2023, the Forum for Leadership on Water and Massey College at the University of Toronto partnered to offer a symposium that aimed to bring the water community in Canada together to break down barriers, generate ideas and agree on solutions to a growing water and water-related climate crisis in Canada. The purpose of the symposium was to engage and inspire meaningful conversation and debate across disciplines, affiliations and governments with respect to policy, legislation, finance and actions needed to ensure the sustainability of Canada’s great freshwater resource. This report, produced in association with the United Nations University Institute of Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH) is a summary synthesis of the proceedings of what may well turn out to be a turning point in Canadian understanding of the threats global climate breakdown and the loss of hydrologic stationarity now pose and may pose in the future to water security in this country and how we can address them. The symposium was conducted under the Chatham House Rule, which is an unwritten agreement that allows the use of information from a discussion without direct quote or attribution to a speaker or the organization they represent. Though it will identify the keynote speakers, this report will respect this rule and will highlight the ideas and discussions from the symposium without citing the specific speakers.
