 geogratis is canvec data.
I suggest you use the toporama extraction tool for hydrography:

you can export only water features. You can now select WGS84/espg:3857 and make sure you select shapefile. JOSM can open shapefiles with opendataplugin

I would like to improve the mapping of streams and creeks in my area (southern Alberta, Canada).

Many of the smaller streams are not on OSM, and that’s what I am after (the bigger rivers are already there).

Government of Canada publishes the data (Geogratis.ca) and when I downloaded a couple of tiles, the two layers (what’s on OSM and what Geogratis has) is about (my estimate) 95% identical – other than the missing streams.


I have never done an import, but it seems to me that someone imported an older version of this data. 

How would I get in touch with them or find out how far they got in their project and why did they stop where they stopped?

I’d like to connect with them to continue the good work they did.
