À propos de la Conférence

Canadian IWA Young Water Professionals Conference est un évènement qui rassemble des Jeunes Professionnels de l’Eau (JPE) passionnés et enthousiastes (sous l’âge de 35 ans) de tout le Canada qui sont présents physiquement ou virtuellement.

Organisée par et pour les jeunes professionnels et étudiants, cette conférence met en valeur les principes de leadership et les capacités techniques des JP à travers le Canada. «Leading from the Future» aidera également les YWP à développer leurs compétences et leur réseau professionnel via des sessions techniques, des concours d’affiches, des ateliers et des sessions de réseautage.

Nous espérons offrir des opportunités de réseautage en personne via des hubs locaux avec de petits groupes uniquement. En raison de l’incertitude actuelle autour du COVID-19, nous prévoyons également une programmation virtuelle. Où que vous soyez au Canada, vous pouvez participer.

About the Conference

IWA Young Water Professionals Canadian National Conference is a hybrid (in-person and virtual) event gathering  passionate and enthusiastic young water professionals (under age 35) from across Canada.

Hosted by and for young professionals and students, this conference showcase the leadership and technical abilities of YWPs across Canada. “Leading from the Future” will also help YWPs build skills and their professional network via technical sessions, poster competition, workshops and networking sessions.

We hope to offer in-person networking opportunities via local hubs with small groups only. Due to current uncertainty around COVID-19, we are also planning for virtual programming. No matter where you are in Canada, you can participate.
