Water’s Next Nominations are Open for 2020

On the night of June 11th, join us in celebration, network with your peers, and award yourself with a night of reflection on the great work done in Canadian water throughout 2019. With the Water’s Next national awards gala, we raise a glass to celebrate the achievements of individuals and companies that successfully work to change water in our country.

Every year, Water Canada’s Water’s Next awards program honours the incredible achievements and ideas of individuals and companies that successfully work to make a positive change to water in our country and abroad.

In 2019, we received 44 nominations. Drawing on the advice of the esteemed group of water experts who make up the Water’s Next Selection Committee, we awarded 11 Water’s Next awards in addition to water person of the year (Emma Wattie) and project/technology of the year (Toronto Water).

And new this year, we will provide long-deserved recognition to the water operators who work tirelessly to ensure that communities have safe drinking water and sound wastewater systems.
