Water Summit to Foster Innovation, Camaraderie in Sector Businesses

April 25, 2011
World-leading water officials will gather in Toronto to discuss the future of innovation in the water sector

Water officials are gathering in Toronto May 17 to 18 to spotlight issues the water sector is facing and opportunities for the business community.

Clean water is emerging as the next great challenge for the world’s corporations, governments and communities. It also presents a significant business opportunity. Water infrastructure, wastewater management and water purification are beginning to drive levels of investment comparable to renewable energy—$22 trillion is expected to be spent on this sector worldwide over the next 20 years. The Ontario Global Water Leadership Summit has been organized to create an interactive forum in which the world’s water leaders come together to address opportunities and challenges presented by this sector.

“Ontario’s Global Water Leadership Summit points to the importance of the global water market and strengthens Ontario’s position as a leader in water innovation,” said Ontario Minister of Economic Development and Trade Sandra Pupatello.
