How it works

Showcasing Water Innovation (SWI) is the province’s program to demonstrate leading edge, innovative and cost-effective solutions for managing drinking water, stormwater and wastewater systems in Ontario communities.

The program complements Ontario’s Water Opportunities Act by:

  • fostering innovation
  • creating opportunities for economic development
  • protecting water resources

Successful applicants

In 2011, the province put out the call for funding applications for projects that communities across Ontario and beyond could learn from and be inspired by.

Thirty-two projects were chosen to receive funding and each is now well under way.
