Professional Development Events

CWRA is the oldest and largest member-based water resources management association in Canada today. One of CWRA’s main goals is to serve its members by delivering programs, publications, educational opportunities and services, such as conferences, courses, events, scholarships and partnerships.

Expertise and Services

CWRA’s members provide expertise and professional knowledge services in a variety of ways from reviewing and editing water resources management documents to serving on technical advisory committees. The majority of this work is on national, multi-sectoral water related issues.

Resources and Publications

CWRA produces many different publications and resources, some of which are exclusive to members. These include Project WET Canada programming and instructional resources, our member magazine WaterNews, and the Canadian Water Resources Journal.


CWRA members have a wide range of backgrounds – water engineers, hydrologists, geographers, biologists, climate scientists, planners, modellers, academics, industry representatives, and policy makers. Why did they all join? Because members:

  • Receive discounts to conferences, workshops, webinars, and technical courses;
  • Value professional networking opportunities to share ideas with academics, practitioners, and government;
  • Gain insight into water and climate-related issues through our publications and webinars;
  • Have access to our Water News magazine and quarterly Canadian Water Resources Journal;
  • Learn what’s happening across jurisdictions and with other water-related disciplines in Canada;
  • Build relationships, form partnerships, and create collaborations;
  • Enjoy the opportunity to volunteer in Canada’s vibrant water community; and
  • NEW! Members only online office hours on the first Friday of the month, 1-2PM ET. Sign in as a member for access.

You can join as an individual student, young professional, regular, or retired member of CWRA and our affiliates, CANCID and CSHS, or as a corporate member at three levels of benefits!
