“APWA membership includes public works professionals from
Canada, and the last APWA annual Congress held in Canada was in 1988,” said
APWA President Ed Gottko, PWLF, of New Jersey. “Toronto is an especially
exciting location for Congress, because it’s an international city of warmth,
openness, energy and style enriched by the fusion of traditions, passions and
ways of looking at life of over 100 cultures,” he said.

 

“More than 125 education sessions will be offered on a broad
array of the most current public works topics, such as integrating modes of
transportation, sustainability best practices, traffic and transit,
construction management, emergency management, engineering and technology,
fleet and facilities, parks and grounds, snow and ice control, and
stormwater/flood control, as well as solid waste, roads and bridges and
water/wastewater,” said APWA Executive Director Peter B. King.
