Participants in Canadian Water Network events return year after year to experience our unique networking opportunities, and to engage in discussions surrounding innovative solutions and approaches to advance progress on priority water management challenges. Our focus is on attracting and connecting the right people.

With this focus in mind, our events are designed to bring together diverse groups from government, industry and academia to network, share ideas, and build lasting and valuable partnerships. This approach fosters future collaborations and excellent learning opportunities.

Blue Cities Conference

Blue Cities is not a typical conference — it’s a focal point for ongoing conversations on strategic issues in municipal water management. We take great care in designing a compelling, interactive program with leading experts from Canada and across the globe. The attendees are primarily decision-makers from utilities, the private sector, government, academia and NGOs. Blue Cities is an annual event that generates insights you won’t find anywhere else.
