Who we are

OMWA: The Voice of Municipal Water Supply

The Ontario Municipal Water Association’s mission is to act as the voice of Ontario’s public water supply authorities and their customers on policy, legislative and regulatory issues related to the provision of safe and reliable public water supply in Ontario. We are a unique organization in that our focus is upon the management and administration of public drinking water, stormwater, and wastewater. Our membership is made up of public water supply authorities. Our directors are either municipal officials or senior water supply managers.

OMWA represents more than 180 municipalities in Ontario* serving more than seven million customers and includes elected, appointed and management representatives. OMWA brings together a wide cross-section of expertise to provide direction and leadership on policy, legislative and regulatory issues for drinking water, wastewater and stormwater. OMWA’s activities help ensure the best possible safety, quality, reliability and sustainability of water and water management in Ontario.

The focus and the experience of our directors have led to our success in putting forth the views of our members to provincial ministers and senior staff. We host regular Education Days across the province to keep our members informed, engaged and learning.
