The International Stockholm Junior Water Prize contest, which is held during the World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden each August, aims to encourage young people's interest in issues concerning water and the environment. The award is given annually for an outstanding water project by a young person or a small group of young people. With this, the competition seeks to inspire young people to a continued engagement for water and the environment.

The Canadian participant for the contest is selected through the Canada Wide Science Fair by a panel of judges supplied by the Canadian Water Environment Federation Member Associations. The winner of the Canadian Stockholm Junior Water Prize (CSJWP) contest competes at the International Contest.  WEAO's own, Julie Vincent, SJWP National Organizer, went with Hayley to Sweden and is celebrating her win with her.  More information on the CSJWP competition can be found at:   http://www.sjwp.ca

News Release

Province Supporting the Infrastructure Needs of Small Communities

August 18, 2014

Delivering on its Economic Plan to Build Ontario Up by Investing in Infrastructure

Ontario is providing small, rural and northern municipalities with stable, annual funding to build and repair critical infrastructure and help to create jobs across the province.
Premier Kathleen Wynne and Jeff Leal, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, were in St. Thomas to announce that the new Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund will provide $100 million per year in funding for critical road, bridge, water and wastewater projects.

Half of the funding for the initiative will be allocated annually using a fair and transparent formula, which recognizes that municipalities have different infrastructure and fiscal needs. The remaining $50 million will flow through an application-based process, allowing municipalities to continue partnering with the province to invest in critical infrastructure projects that will create jobs and support growth.

The Premier also announced that Ontario municipalities can now propose infrastructure projects to be considered for support through the Small Communities Fund. Through this fund, Ontario and the federal government will each provide $272 million to support projects in municipalities with populations less than 100,000.
