Meet our team



Our Board of Directors that governs Water For People-Canada consists of up to 13 members.

The Board includes representatives from regional water and wastewater industry associations:

  • Reseau Environnement
  • Atlantic Canada Water Works Association
  • Ontario Water Works Association
  • Western Canada Section AWWA
  • British Columbia and the Yukon (BC Local Committee)
  • Water Environment Federation Ontario

Beyond these industry associations, the Board also includes the CEO or a representative of Water For People, the Past President of Water For People Canada, and as many as five additional members-at-large whose interest in charitable activities is compatible with the objectives of Water For People-Canada. Directors are elected to the board by the current board members and, once elected, serve as individual directors.
