Ottawa Valley Branch

Ottawa Valley Branch

The Ottawa Valley Branch is a branch of OPWA, established in the mid 1980’s. This Branch draws membership from the territory within the boundaries of the City of Ottawa, the County of Frontenac, the County of Lanark, the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, the County of Prescott and Russell, the County of Renfrew, and the County of Stormont Dundas and Glengarry. Our membership is comprised of public works practitioners employed by the municipalities noted above, consulting engineers, and utilities companies. In addition to supporting OPWA activities at the local level, the purpose of the Ottawa Valley Branch is:

  • The advancement and improvement of theory and practice of the design, construction, operation, maintenance, management and administration of the public works infrastructure and services.
  • The promotion of these improved theories and practices through the dissemination of information and experience.
  • The encouragement of adherence by all employed in the public works industry to a high professional standard.
  • The professional and social improvement of its members, as set forth in the Constitution of APWA.
