Window on Ottawa/
Canadian Water Summit
Join Us November 8th – 11th 2020
Niagara Falls, Ontario
This is CWWA’s flagship event and THE national conference for Canada’s water leaders.
We attract over 500 delegates from Canada’s water utilities, our private sector partners, provincial and federal governments, academia and the not-for-profit sectors.
While CWWA has hosted specialized events for over 30 years, this ‘consolidated’ event has merged all of the former events into ONE, all-encompassing national event focused on what the senior water manager needs to know.
This annual conference offers a wide-ranging technical program covering almost all aspects of the municipal water sector, while offering the best networking environment for Canada’s water leaders.
As THE national conference for the water utility sector, this event offers the best opportunity for sponsorship and exhibiting your products and services to Canada’s most senior water managers.
It is with regret that we announce that the National Water & Wastewater Conference set for Niagara Falls, November 8-11 has been cancelled.
This decision seems inevitable as we watch this COVID-19 situation unfold each day. As we prepare for second and third waves of the coronavirus this fall, we expect that restrictions on travel and limits on large gatherings will continue through to the end of the year. As our priority is on the health of our members and the safe continuity of water operations across Canada, we feel there is little choice but to cancel.

Window On Ottawa
Join us for a virtual event on June 11, 2020.
The in person Window on Ottawa/Water Summit
The “Window” is CWWA’s signature policy workshop.
We invite the most senior national policymakers from each federal department and agency – not to tell us what they’ve already released, but to tell us what they’re working on now and what is coming next. This is a fascinating forum to engage with these policymakers at a very early stage and leave with an understanding of what to expect as a water leader.
In 2020, we are joining forces with our media partners at Water Canada magazine to run the Window in conjunction with the Canadian Water Summit.
The “Summit” is coordinated by our media partners at Water Canada magazine and takes a much wider vision of our water economy. The subject matter and delegates are drawn from beyond just our utility sector, to include food & beverage, agriculture, mining, NGO’s and more.
This year’s theme, for the 11th annual Canadian Water Summit, is “The Keys to a Blue Economy: Unlocking Water Policy, Governance and Technology in Canada.” These are all issues that are of importance to our utility leaders and offers us all a new, wider network of water professionals.
CWWA Workshops & Webinars
Much of our work is very specialized within specific streams that require a focus on specialized topics. Learning and information sharing can sometimes be best achieved though workshops.
In an effort to reach more of our members, and allow more to access critical information in an affordable and timely manner, we will be offering more webinars and electronically-accessed workshops.
