The BCWWA Annual Conference has been a highlight of the water and wastewater community for almost 50 years. It has been a place where old connections reacquaint, new connections are made, projects, research and information are shared, new technology is presented and importantly, people exchange knowledge and ideas that further the sector as a whole. The conference allows us to come together and celebrate the strength of our sector within BC and Yukon.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: It has come to our attention that someone has there are phishing emails being sent impersonating BCWWA. Unfortunately, scammers have chosen to take advantage of the fact that many are working from home and that several major events across the globe have been canceled or postponed.
