The Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA), in collaboration with Water Canada magazine, are pleased to present this informative 4-part series of webinars to support you as water leaders.
Water professionals have counted on the Window on Ottawa for over 30 years to hear the
latest updates from the federal government. Not to hear what each department did last year,
but rather to learn what they are working on right now and what is coming next year. For over
10 years, Water Canada magazine and the Canadian Water Summit have hosted in-depth panel
discussions on the most critical issues. Together, we hope to reach an even wider audience
through these new online opportunities.
Each conversation will provide a keynote presentation from senior staff at a federal government ministry on work being done that impacts the Canadian water sector. We will then convene a utility leaders’ panel to generate thoughtful dialogue that will build on the initial conversation.
