Where do Canadians draw the line? Save Our Water is drawing the line at groundwater being extracted cheaply and sold expensively. We are drawing the line at a finite natural resource being pulled from under our feet by the world’s largest food company. We are drawing the line for our kids and their kids. Because what Nestlé does might be legal, but it’s not right.

WATER IS A HUMAN RIGHT, NOT A COMMODITY.
OUR WATER IS NOT FOR SALE.

Nestlé Waters is systematically buying water wells across the world to commercialize groundwater. Here in the township of Centre Wellington, they are planning to extract 1.6 million litres of groundwater every day from our local aquifer. Our communities rely on that water. It's time to say no.

The Facts

8 FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW

The Ontario government today announced a proposed six-month extension of the moratorium on water bottling permits, ending April 1, 2021. The current moratorium, which originally took effect on December 16, 2016 and was previously extended on December 21, 2018 and again on December 23, 2019, prohibits new permits for water bottling facilities to take groundwater, prevents existing water bottling facilities from increasing their draw beyond what is authorized in their current permit, and precludes new or amended permits for pumping tests to identify sources for bottled water.
 
This extension to the moratorium is being proposed to allow the government “time to thoroughly review and consider the feedback received on our proposed enhancements to Ontario’s water taking program, as well as to further consult with the public, stakeholders and Indigenous communities on how we can implement those proposed enhancements before the moratorium ends”.
