BCWWA Research Reports

BC Water & Wastewater Sector Workforce Profile

The BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA) and the Environmental Operators Certification Program (EOCP) have worked together to develop the first comprehensive profile of BC’s water and wastewater sector workforce. 

Independent research firm, R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd. (Malatest), was contracted to survey public and private sector organizations operating medium to large water and wastewater collection, treatment and distribution facilities in BC. The research examined workforce demographics, compensation, training and certification, hiring needs and more. The resulting BC Water & Wastewater Sector Workforce Profile provides robust regional data to effectively forecast labour supply and demand to ensure there is a sustainable, competent workforce that is capable of protecting public health and the environment, now and in the future.

Financial Sustainability of BC’s Water & Sewer Infrastructure

Communities in BC will require at least $13 Billion of additional investment to replace existing water and wastewater systems in British Columbia, according to a February 2015 report released by the BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA). The report, entitled Are Our Water Systems at Risk?, assesses the financial capacity of BC’s municipalities to maintain, renew and replace BC’s existing water and wastewater infrastructure.

2016 Ipsos Survey

Each year, the BCWWA partners with Ipsos Reid to measure public perceptions about the value and financial mechanisms of our water and wastewater systems. 

The results of the 2016 Ipsos survey reveal what BC residents currently know about the systems that deliver clean drinking water to their homes and businesses and safely remove wastewater. The results also shed a light on current levels of confidence surrounding the safety of drinking water as well as water and wastewater infrastructure and workforce.
