SOWC: Water Opportunities Act Supports Ontario’s Growth
This past May, Ontario marked the third anniversary of the introduction of the Water Opportunities Act (WOA), legislation that supports the province’s commitment to water as an opportunity for economic growth and as an important resource that must be managed sustainably. In 2010, when the WOA was enacted, Ontario’s water industry was already well-positioned to strengthen its competitive advantage. This sector employed more than 22,000 highly skilled people and generated over $1.8 billion in sales of technologies such as ultraviolet disinfection, membrane filtration technologies, water information and systems software, and plant design and operation.
