Water/Wastewater

Water/Wastewater

Canada is endowed with vast water resources that Canadians tend to take for granted. But just like any other natural asset, it must be managed effectively to ensure that it’s still there for generations to come. Moreover, dealing with water, whether it’s for drinking or for commercial and industrial use or the wastewater at the end, must be done cost-effectively.

Water/Wastewater

The domestic clean technology sector is known globally as being home to some of the most innovative water and wastewater technology companies. You can find them in all parts of the country from British Columbia to Ontario and Quebec. With technology ranging from desalination, to membranes and chemical free wastewater treatment, to ultraviolet potable water purification and decentralized water/wastewater collection and distribution systems, Canada has companies that can offer water and wastewater solutions.

Collaboration and partnerships are key ingredients to a successful clean technology company and firms operating in the water/wastewater space are no different. For Ontario’s water technology sector, they don’t have to go it alone, either. They have WaterTAP, an organization that can help solidify business opportunities.

Designing, building and financing water infrastructure projects is no easy task. They are expensive, require long lead times, need to last for a long time and of course have to be reliable. Yet with a massive water infrastructure deficit in Canada’s water systems, growing uncertainty around precipitation patterns as well as changing demographics, urban sprawl and others, a new approach is needed to ensure water infrastructure can handle the challenges of the future.

Water/Wastewater

Forecasting the impacts of sudden climatic events, long-term slow changes to our environment or even the effects of urbanization on a region’s water supply and systems has largely been a passive exercise. That is starting to change, however, as communications technology and cloud computing capabilities are introduced into the watershed, providing researchers, urban planners and other stakeholders with more immediate, near real time and actionable data.
