University Partners is an informal relationship between IECA and universities and colleges that offer courses in these fields. The partnership’s purpose is to introduce young professionals to our association and provide a means for them to interact in an educational environment with industry professionals who make up IECA membership as well as strengthen IECA education with the inclusion of university research.
CanIECA UofT student club hosted a water industry networking night on January 23, 2020. We had representatives from over 20 companies across the water sector, and over 80 students in attendance. Students are keen to learn about career options in a sector with meaningful work. We also presented several water industry associations, including CanIECA, showing students that membership in professional associations helps your career in the long term.
