About Us

The Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA) was established in 1986 to represent the common interest of Canada's municipal water and wastewater systems to federal and interprovincial bodies with respect to policies, programs, national codes, standards, and legislation. CWWA's membership has expanded to include other than municipal systems, giving our members an even stronger voice in Ottawa. CWWA celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011.
