Water - Accelerating an innovation ecosystem

Cluster Description

Ontario is home to a globally recognized Water Innovation Ecosystem with a strong record of establishing world-class technologies. Our water technology cluster, fuelled by the work of the Water Technology Acceleration Project (WaterTAP) and other partners, have generated a highly competitive water industry with solutions that span across the water, wastewater, and stormwater continuum. As a water cluster, we are also able to tie into a global network of water clusters to collaboratively support a growing market of innovative water solutions.

This tour will explain how we got here, what we’ve learned, and where we’re headed. Along the way, we will show you some of the sites where Ontario water technologies are addressing challenges in unique ways. Join the tour to experience how water technology thrives here.

Agenda and more information coming in May!
