Large Dams and Reservoirs of Canada: Dataset Bulletin
(2010-12-17) This bulletin describes the dataset of large dams and reservoirs of Canada, which is part of a larger project within the umbrella of a multi-year GFWC project titled Energy Developments, Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Forest Conservation in Canada. Reservoirs and their associated dams were created based on the dams listed in the Atlas of Canada, 1,000,000 National Frameworks Data, Hydrology – Dams spatial dataset. Information on hydropower facilities were also made available for those reservoirs contributing to hydropower generation. The dataset is also relevant to the "Hydropower Developments in Canada" reports published in January 2012.
