The Canadian Dam Association (CDA) is a group of dam owners, operators, regulators, engineers and others who share the goal of advancing knowledge and practices related to dams. We are involved in all types of dams used for many different purposes: hydroelectric power, irrigation, flood control, water supply and mining operations.

CDA envisions a future in which all dams are safe, well-managed and benefit society. Our mission is to encourage cooperation, advance technical knowledge, and build competency related to dams in Canada. CDA serves as the Canadian National Committee of the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD).
