Water is big business in Ontario. Over 900 water technology companies call the Canadian province home, including Grundfos Canada, Purifics, UV Pure, TrojanUV, Eco-Tec, and Echologics. Ontario also boasts more than 300 engineering and consulting firms with a focus on water, including Black & Veatch Water, CH2M Hill, and AMEC Earth and Environmental, and over 100 water research, education, and training facilities. More water-related patents have been issued in Ontario over the past 30 years than in any other comparable jurisdiction in the world.
With so many big players, Ontario is already making a big impact on water innovation. But the province is looking to do even more.
