CWMA 2018 Conference Presentation Archive


The CWMA 2018 Conference was held October 17-19, 2018 in Victoria, BC.

Our theme: “Global Challenges – Local Solutions”,  brought together almost 300 waste and recycling professionals to network and explore leading edge topics that affect the waste management, recycling and organics sector today.

Over 47% of our delegates were from the Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities region including 34 First Nations attendees, 44% from the rest of BC, and the remaining 9% of attendees came from other provinces and countries. Thank you to all of our speakers and delegates who helped create another successful conference. 

2018 keynote speakers  Dr. Judith Sayers, Dr. Lisa Skumatz and Pat D. McLaughlin were extraordinary and we are grateful for their time and illuminating presentations.

Building on our successes from past conferences, the planning committee for 2018 developed a full program with topics and presenters covering a broad range of subjects. Please see the Presentation Archive tab to view the 2018 presentations. Our popular roundtable sessions which have become a mainstay of Day 1 all generated great discussion and information sharing.

Tours included the Emterra Groups’ CNG fueling facility, Moon Brewery & Pub, Schnitzer Steel, Compassionate Resource Warehouse, Disaster Aid Canada and Lighthouse Brewing Company.

We hope you can join us and participate at our 2019 Conference October 23 – 25, 2019.
Details and registration will begin JUNE 2019.
