CWS/WOO 2020 Update

CWS/WOO 2020 and the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The organizing team behind this year’s 2020 Canadian Water Summit, in collaboration with the CWWA’s Window on Ottawa, are paying close attention to the continued developments surrounding the global spread of the coronavirus.


As containment measures continue around the world, we are paying close attention to the effectiveness of the containment measures in place across Canada and around the world. 


While we wait to see the success of those measures, we continue to diligently work towards preparing content and speakers for the Canadian Water Summit and Window on Ottawa, with the hope that we will be able to present the event as scheduled. Should that not be possible due to the continued spread of COVID-19, we will announce our plans for next steps.


We will continue to monitor the situation very closely. In the meantime, we would encourage all of you to stay safe by following the recommended procedures and personal hygiene practices as recommended by Health Canada. We want to make sure that all of you are in good health regardless of when we are fortunate enough to see you next.


Until then, stay strong and Water Summit on!
