Are you looking to learn more about how you and or your company can support a positive impact in our global programs but do not know how to begin your journey in philanthropy? There are a few ways I can help you manage your motivations and, in the end, inspire you and your team’s equity and visibility in giving back to a global community.

Please reach out to me directly, I am excited to start collaborating to make a shared impact in the world.


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.
