Welcome to the Manitoba Branch site!

The Manitoba Branch of the Canadian Water Resources Association is here to inform and engage the water community of Manitoba – at both the professional and student level. The Branch achieves this through delivery of workshops, networking events, speaker series, water education (i.e. Project WET) and community events.

From storm sewers to hydro dams to wetlands, the Manitoba Branch is working to promote sustainable water resource management in our province.

If you’re interested in getting involved in Branch activities, we’d love to hear from you! You can get in touch with the Manitoba Branch by emailing mb@cwra.org.

Ontario Branch Mentoring Program

Program Goals:

The CWRA Ontario Branch Mentorship Program is intended to provide value to newer members of the CWRA, increase professional engagement in water management activities and in CWRA activities, and build long term connections among members of CWRA. The program allows for the transfer of information among generations of professionals in water resources. The Ontario mentorship program is affiliated with national CWRA mentorship activities.


The mentorship program is currently between sessions. Applications for the 2020-2021 session will open in the early fall. Information about the 2019-2020 session is available here.

If you are looking for mentorship but are not in Ontario, please get in touch with the Ontario Mentorship Program by email and they can refer you to a local branch for mentoring options.
