RBC sponsors 2013 Canadian Water Network conference

“Connecting Water Resources”

March 22, 2013 - RBC was pleased to sponsor the annual Canadian Water Network conference held last week in Ottawa, Ontario. This year’s conference focused on the possibilities for progress and innovation in water management in Canada, with the underlying assumption that Canada can be a global leader in water management, with the potential for existing and emerging research to be applied to policy and practice. The conference was attended by a mix of high-profile international speakers from government, academia and the private sector. 

Participants previewed Canada as the Water Solutions Country: Defining the Opportunities, the second in a series of white papers produced by The Blue Economy Initiative, of which RBC is a founding member. This series is meant to inspire and create conversation about how we might create a ‘blue’ economy, based on opportunities in water.
