The Ontario Government introduced the Water Opportunities and Water Conservation Act.
If passed, the legislation would help Ontario water technology companies develop and market their products at home and abroad and encourage Ontarians to use water more efficiently.

In addition, the legislation would help municipalities improve the efficiency of infrastructure and services by:

  • Looking for innovative, cost-effective solutions to solve water challenges, including water conservation;
  • Optimizing systems and improving water conservation;
  • Identifying opportunities to demonstrate and implement new and emerging Ontario water technologies and services; and,
  • Moving toward measures and targets to demonstrate progress.
AMO will be examining the legislation to ensure that it is practical, and to foster a partnership approach to improving water conservation in Ontario.
