CMWC Consortium Leadership Group

The Consortium Leadership Group (CLG) plays a crucial role in shaping the direction of municipal water research in Canada. Member municipalities and utilities in the CLG value the opportunity to collaborate through peer sharing initiatives and participate in the national prioritization of municipal research. They have a seat at the table of a recognized national body of senior water executives who will share knowledge, pool resources and ultimately be positioned to make better-informed decisions and investments.
