March 11, 2016 | By Doug Picklyk

The Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) has awarded WaterAid Canada with the inaugural National Water Wise Award in celebration of World Plumbing Day on March 11, 2016.

The award was developed to recognize outstanding efforts to improve the world’s relationship with water, and WaterAid Canada has been selected because of the organization’s work to improve access to safe water, hygiene and toilets in the world’s poorest communities. WaterAid is also being recognized for its creative approach to raising awareness in Canada through both traditional and social media.

“WaterAid Canada is making a huge difference in the lives of people in the developing world,” said Ralph Suppa, president and general manager at CIPH. “The organization deserves the support of individuals and corporate Canada. Safe water and sanitation should be a human right recognized by all, which sadly isn’t the case for many of the poorest people in the world.”

WaterAid is an international non-profit organization dedicated to helping the world’s poorest people gain access to safe water and sanitation. WaterAid operates in 37 countries across Africa, Asia, Central America and the Pacific region.
