About OPWA

The Ontario Public Works Association (OPWA) is the Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA) and the American Public Works Association (APWA).  Membership in APWA/CPWA numbers approximately 29,000 in 64 Chapters across Canada and the United States, making it the largest and longest-established public works association in the world.

OPWA is by far the largest Canadian Chapter of APWA, with membership totalling slightly over 630 public works professionals in both the public and private sectors.  In keeping with its mandate, OPWA is truly the authoritative Voice of Public Works in Ontario.

Supported by its parent associations, OPWA offers a wealth of services to its members through a variety of technical workshops, social/recreational programs (skiing, curling and golf), newsletters and online resources aimed at providing information/training, problem solutions and networking.  The term "Public Works" encompasses many related and multi-faceted fields and OPWA provides resources for professionals and supervisors in each and every one.  It represents a single association covering all aspects of infrastructure - water and wastewater, roads and transit, solid waste management, municipal buildings and facilities, parks and recreation, snow and ice control, emergency management, utilities and rights-of-way.
