Join the Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA) for the first ever virtual edition of Ontario’s Water Conference & Trade Show.


The OWWA is excited to gather Ontario’s water professionals to take part in the same high quality technical content, networking and technology showcases in a virtual space.


New to virtual events? No need to worry. OWWA is using an industry-leading conference and trade show platform that is user-friendly and accessible. Attendees can navigate their way through the platform in 12 different languages.


The virtual conference is more accessible than ever for water industry professionals across the province, with double the technical content hours (up to 1.9 CEUs), and significantly reduced registration rates.


The conference will run over a series of afternoons on April 19, 21, 23, 26, 28, 30 and May 3 and 5. The conference will feature all of the technical streams attendees would find at the in-person OWWA event, including Asset Management, Automation, Construction, Distribution, Groundwater, Source Water Protection, Treatment and more. With more than 120 speakers, there is something new for everyone.


The OWWA’s exciting and engaging Fresh Ideas competition and University Research streams will also identify the best and brightest newcomers to the water industry.


The virtual trade show will provide opportunity to network with service providers from all across Ontario and will feature Live Meet, virtual booths and prizes.
