Ontario Global Water Leadership Summit

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Clean water is emerging as the next great challenge for the world’s corporations, governments and communities, and as such, it also presents a significant business opportunity.

The Ontario Global Water Leadership Summit has been organized to create an interactive two-day forum in which the world’s water leaders come together to address the opportunities and challenges presented by this sector, and to form new collaborations and relationships.

Water is not just a third world problem, or a public sector issue – it’s becoming a new engine for jobs.

Leveraging the cluster of water sector expertise, academic rigor and entrepreneurial success that has emerged in Ontario, Canada, the international community’s top thought leaders, CEOs, technology pioneers and researchers are gathering in Toronto on May 17-18, 2011 to spotlight the issues the water sector is facing, and the opportunities for the business community.
