OCWA actively supports Youth Employment and Educational initiatives and mentoring through various programs:
Working with Ontario colleges and universities, we connect students to Co-ops and Job Placements. The Agency also invites youth to learn about water careers through our Summer Experience Program. OCWA also offers two Environmental Second-year Scholarships for students who are planning an environmental career. Please contact Marivel Mendiola– firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding OCWA scholarships.
If you are interested in booking a tour to one of OCWA's water or wastewater facilities, please contact the Communications Department at email@example.com. A representative will be able to provide you with contact information for the facility* you are looking to tour.
Please note: OCWA cannot guarantee that all facilities can accommodate group requests, however many of them are happy to provide tours to schools and community groups. These are decided on a case-by-case basis.
