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. Co-op opportunities will be posted on this site as they become available.
OCWA offers two Environmental Second-year Scholarships for students who are planning an environmental career. This is open to students entering their second year of an Environmental Co-op Program at an Ontario college or university. Two scholarships of up to $2,500 plus a paid co-op work term are awarded annually.
OCWA also offers an Environmental Entrance Scholarship for Aboriginal students entering their first year of an Environmental Co-op Program at an Ontario college or university. One scholarship of up to $2,500 plus a paid co-op work term is awarded annually.
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.
