Nature’s Gift: Ours to Protect
November 6 – 10, 2017
NTWWA 2017 Annual Conference, Trade Show, AGM and Operators Workshop was held at Frobisher Inn in Iqaluit, Nunavut November 6th to November 10th, 2017. The Conference and Operators Workshop was a great success and we look forward to the 2018 Conference and Operators Workshop in Yellowknife, NWT.
The 2017 conference and workshop in Iqaluit featured presentations from governments, regulators, researchers, and industry as well as a two-day Operators Workshop. The Conference and Trade show featured exhibits with the companies, products and services and their respective representatives who know what works best in our northern environment. Our members who attended the Conference and the Operators Workshop earned Continuing Education Credits. Once again the Great Northern Drinking Water Challenge was a fun event, with communities competing for the trophy for the best water in the North.
