"There are certainly many water centres and institutes in Canada, each
offering value to the study of water challenges. After speaking to a
number of colleagues, as well as Summit participants, it is clear to me
that the Pacific Water Research Centre is unique in a number of ways," Leman Stefanovic said. 

The department's website lists the department's unique features and focus on, among other topics, local, national and international research; coastal communities; Aboriginal needs; community engagement; and archaeology and forensic science.
