COVID19 Update

CWRA takes the health and safety of its members, conference attendees, and the public seriously. We are monitoring the ongoing COVID19 situation and are assessing the potential risks of holding our conference in June. At this time, we are planning to hold the conference as scheduled; however, a lot may change between now and then. In the event that risks escalate and officials deem it unsafe or inadvisable to travel or hold an event, we will then cancel or postpone the conference. We will continue to evaluate the situation and post more information on this website as soon as we have further updates. We encourage you to continue to prepare for the conference, but to defer making travel arrangements at this time while we are gathering more information with which to make our decision. Thank you for your understanding.


Scholarship applications are now closed for 2020.

The scholarship application deadline was January 31, 2020. Thank you to all who applied.

The 2020 CWRA National Conference has been rescheduled to June 15-18 at the Canad Inns Destination Centre Polo Park in Winnipeg, MB. Please see our venue page for more information.
