Technical Program

Western Canada Water invites you to Saskatoon for our 69th Annual Conference and Exhibition. This year’s conference theme “Making Every Drop Count” conveys a message of efficiency and sustainability. Our infrastructure is under increasing pressure from deterioration, growth, higher demand for levels of service, and from a desire to lower costs, and environmental impact. Our industry must be as creative and resourceful as possible to ensure that we continue to provide some of the most basic services for the preservation of health while making sure that they are affordable and sustainable for all our users.

Special Session Wednesday Afternoon
Join us after the Exhibition on Wednesday afternoon for a special session with John Lagimodiere of Eagle Feather News discussing Aboriginal history in Canada, terminology and demographics relating to First Nations, treaties and the Indian Act. John will end the seminar discussing the investments, partnerships and calls to action that are helping change how Indigenous people fit into Canada.
