Lindsay Day receives Water's Next Award
June 14, 2022
A well-deserved congratulations to Lindsay Day, DataStream’s Program Manager, for receiving the Water’s Next Award in the Non-Government Leader category as part of the 13th annual Canadian Water Summit.
The national Canadian Water Summit celebrates collaboration and knowledge-sharing between the many groups that make up the Canadian water landscape. Winners of the Water’s Next Awards are water champions and leaders that make substantial contributions to Canada’s water industry and beyond.
Lindsay is one of 14 winners of the Water’s Next Award. The award recognizes her hard-work and dedication in the Non-Government space as a leader of DataStream, an open access platform for sharing water data.
Lindsay leads a team of Data Specialists and works closely with monitoring organizations of all kinds to grow DataStream and support collaborative water stewardship across four regional hubs in Canada.
As an avid kayaker who monitors her local lake, Lindsay understands the water monitoring community she is part of. Lindsay’s passion for working with others to improve how we live with, and care for, water in Canada is infectious.
Lindsay’s impact has been felt across the country, from the Mackenzie Basin to the Great Lakes. With a strong understanding of the importance of open data and the value of sharing information in the wider water community, Lindsay is truly deserving of the Water’s Next Award. Congratulations Lindsay!

National Lake Blitz makes citizen science a cinch
In 2021, Living Lakes Canada launched the National Lake Blitz. The water stewardship organization had two goals: to help track the impact of climate change on Canada’s lakes and to make it easy for everyone to get involved in water monitoring, no matter their age or experience.
