Supporting Organizations

Over the years, OPWA has developed a number of strategic working relationships with other like-minded associations involved in the public works field.  For example, we are a founding member of the Ontario Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (OCSI) and continue to actively promote and support OCSI’s activities.  The other members of OCSI are the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA), the Municipal Finance Officers’ Association of Ontario, the Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA), the Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA)  and the Water Environment Association of Ontario (WEAO).
More recently, OPWA entered into a formal Memorandum of Understanding with the Association of Ontario Road Supervisors (AORS), with whom we closely collaborate.  AORS and OPWA mutually promote and support each others education, training and advocacy efforts.
Other associations/organizations we work closely with include the Centre for the Advancement of Trenchless Technologies (CATT), the Ontario Association of Certified Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) and the Ontario Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA).
