Call for Posters deadline Jan 29

A poster presentation is a bulletin board that is organized so that research data, programs, plans, or case studies can be displayed graphically. The poster should provide the reader with research objectives, experimental methods, materials, results, and conclusions, where applicable. These types of presentations enable one-to-one communication between presenters and delegates during the attended periods, and allow delegates time to read presentations at their own leisure during the unattended periods. In order to take advantage of this opportunity, submit here before January 29. The approved authors will be notified by February 26.

Statistics Canada – 2015 Survey of Drinking Water Plants.

In the winter of 2016 Statistics Canada will be conducting the Survey of Drinking Water Plants. This survey is a census of public drinking water plants serving communities of 300 or more people. The survey results will produce a national portrait of treatment processes and costs, and source water quality across Canada.  The plants in the survey range in size from ones that use complex treatment processes for surface water to ones that use minimal treatment for groundwater. The data collected will be used to monitor water reserves at the regional level in Canada and to develop environmental accounts.

Drinking water plant operators will be contacted by phone in January of 2016 to verify contact name and address. The survey will be mailed out in February 2016 and we encourage all utilities that receive the survey to complete it as best and as soon as possible and return it to Statistics Canada.  More information about the survey can be found at

Specific enquires about this survey should be directed to Environment, Energy and Transportation Statistics Division, Statistics Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0T6 or by email to
