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. The Manitoba Branch will be hosting the CWRA National Conference in 2020, which will attract over 200 people from across Canada.

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

Winnipeg SYP Chapter

Winnipeg has one of the most active (and fun) Student and Young Professional chapters across Canada. The Winnipeg SYP hosts regular talks, networking events, activities and social events. Many of the events are hosted or developed by the University of Manitoba SYP contingent but the group is open to members from across Winnipeg and are actively trying to grow membership from the University of Winnipeg.

Come out and join one of our upcoming events and meet some new people, make friends and perhaps learn a couple things! Everyone is welcome.
