Rainwater Management. CANARM stands for the promotion and education of
rainwater and stormwater management best practices. With increasing
environmental awareness and concerns, addressing the issues of rainwater
management has become paramount to the success and longevity of many
residences and business operations. CANARM has been established to deal
with the vast array of very positive actions undertaken by
entrepreneurs, homeowners, and designers, helping to consolidate and focus
jurisdictional governances across Canada.
is a resource for education, awareness, training, and connectivity for
various groups and individuals involved in the rainwater industry. We

harvesting system, examples of installed rainwater projects, and a
directory of trained professionals to help design your residential or
commercial rainwater harvesting system.
