CoCoRaHS Canada is a non-profit, grassroots, volunteer network of weather observers of all ages and background measuring and mapping precipitation (rain, and snow) in their communities. CoCoRaHS Canada was launched in Manitoba in 2011 after severe flooding prompted a desire for more detailed and geographically dense precipitation
The organization's site is administered by Farm & Food Care Canada and it provides the ability for our observers to see their observations mapped out in "real time", as well as providing a wealth of information for data users.
Volunteers use low-cost measurement tools and stress education and training to create a network that provides high quality data to a variety of users. Observers submit observations online or using the CoCoRaHS app available from the App Store and Google Play Store

Precipitation observations are used by various government agencies (i.e. Environment Canada), meteorologists, engineers, climate scientists, insurance providers and farmers all over the country for analyzing weather pattern, developing better construction materials, developing policies and crop planning.
