Water, thou hast no taste, no colour, no odour; canst not be defined, art relished while ever mysterious. Not necessary to life, but rather life itself, thou filled us with a gratification that exceeds the delight of the senses.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Partners and Collaborators

ReachforWater is supported by a number of partners, including school board directors, collaborators from environmental and health promotion organizations, and three Québec ministries (Health and Social Services; Education, Higher Education and Research; Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change) and the Government of Canada through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

Source of funding

Development of this project is financed by transitional funding (2016-2017) received from the Government of Canada (Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Project Grant Program, Funding Reference Number: PJT-149054).

For the full implementation of ReachforWater, more funding is needed. Thus, the search for financial partners is under way.
