The Business of Water – Innovation Across the Entire Life Cycle

Every year, hundreds of water leaders from government, industry, non-profit organizations, and academia gather for the Canadian Water Summit. This year’s event drew business leaders from major sectors of the Canadian economy with an interest in best practices in water innovation and the latest trends in water-related risks. Attendees travel to the Summit from across Canada and internationally to network with their peers and establish new linkages and relationships in the water sector. A large percentage of delegates each year are new to the event and many are local to the city and province in which the summit is located. New or old, everyone agrees it is a ‘must attend’ event for anyone who has a practice area or personal interest that involves water.

Thank you for all who participated this year. Stay tuned for details of our 2017 Canadian Water Summit.
