Background: The Canadian Water Summit (www.watersummit.ca) is Canada’s national conference which convenes leaders from diverse stakeholder groups to share best practices and to collaborate on achieving a united mission: a sustainable water future for Canada. With $2 billion of funding announced in the recent federal budget for a dedicated Clean Water and Wastewater fund, it’s obvious that water is big business in Canada. Delegates will join in discussion with industry and technology leaders on how Canada can grow its economy by capitalizing on its strengths in the water sector.
