Water-related issues are a driving force for economic growth, social well-being and a healthy population in Canada and around the world. This critical interest is reflected in the diversity of water-related research and education initiatives at Queen’s University, the Royal Military College of Canada and its partner organizations. The BWRC is an inter-disciplinary research centre dedicated to furthering these interests and is committed to fostering an environment that encourages collaborative research spanning both traditional water-related disciplines, as well as non-traditional and emerging disciplines.
