Ontario Water Consortium
Increasing pressures on water and wastewater systems, from aging infrastructure to extreme weather to urban growth, present increasingly complex challenges for water management. Ontario is home to world-leading clean technologies and a robust innovation ecosystem, giving it a clear competitive advantage in the water sector. OWC connects companies to academic expertise and ends users to support technology demonstration, scale-up and adoption.
With funding from both the Federal and Provincial governments, the Southern Ontario Water Consortium (SOWC) established crucial infrastructure, forged networks and funded collaborations that are making waves at home and internationally. It has become a force in cleantech innovation across Ontario.
