The Canadian Water Directory website is a national online directory of products, services and resources for water supply, wastewater management, irrigation and drainage. Divided by province and territory, (and by region in British Columbia), the directory allows users to search for companies providing products, services and construction in each of these three sectors. It also provides links to some Canadian regulations and guides related to drinking water and water supply. Operated by the non-profit Sustainable Infrastructure Society, the Directory was created to help strengthen the water industry in Canada and to support industry work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goal #6 – “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”.
 
The Directory is useful to those looking to connect with water industry suppliers in their region. One of its best features is the ability to search by province/territory or sector and within these areas by category of product or service, and industry affiliation.
