FiveOCWA in 2014

Every day, millions of Ontarians drink our tap water and trust us to make their wastewater safe for the environment.


Every year OCWA participates in a number of conferences across Ontario to share our story. This year, we will be involved in over 35 conferences, trade shows and workshops and we are looking forward to meeting you.


To kick things off, OCWA will be at the National First Nations Infrastructure Conference and Trade Show: Building for a Sustainable Future from February 3-5 in Toronto. Visit our booth (#212) and let's talk water.


Later in the month (February 23-26), OCWA will be at the Ontario Good Roads Association/Rural Ontario Municipal Association Combined Conference in Toronto. Come visit us at booth #76.


OCWA is also excited to be sponsoring the launch of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce's (OCC) comprehensive report on the Ring of Fire. The launch event will be held on February 20 at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto and OCWA will be part of the panel discussion during the event. In attendance will be 40-50 decision-makers from the provincial and federal governments, including Deputy Ministers, Assistant Deputy Ministers and Ministers' Chiefs of Staff, as well as representatives from the mining, financial services, construction/engineering sectors, and other relevant sectors.


Also on tap for 2014, OCWA will be hosting a series of free workshops in several of our client communities. Please visit ocwa.com for more details (exact dates and times will be posted shortly)

  • Distribution/Condition Assessment
  • Energy Initiative with Honeywell, Energy funding and incentives
  • Optimization - water audits/WW facility modeling

OCWA in the Community 


OCWA Invests in Communities.

OCWA staff and partners across the province were proud to have contributed their time and expertise to over 90 community and educational events throughout 2013. From water festivals, public tours and classroom visits, to charity runs, shoreline cleanups and assembling water filtration units to be shipped to areas in need around the world, it was quite a year!
