A pan-Canada water technology ecosystem working working to accelerate the scale-up and adoption of Canadian competitive water technology solutions to address the world’s most pressing water challenges.
WaterNEXT is focused on water in all forms and contexts. Our role is to advance the Canadian water technology ecosystem by:
The Canadian Water Technology Ecosystem Map is your essential guide to navigating Canada’s water innovation landscape. This open access resource was developed through a collaboration between the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), Aqua Forum, and Foresight to share information, foster collaboration, and build community across Canada’s water technology ecosystem.
This fall, waterNEXT will run its second annual water accelerator with a cohort of up to 10 promising water technology startups from across Canada. This year’s theme is digital water solutions, including sensors, software, and smart technologies across all sectors.
Last year, Foresight Canada, alongside partners WaterSMART, BlueTech Research, and NRC IRAP, launched the waterNEXT accelerator program to advance Canada’s water technology ecosystem. 8 companies completed the program, with 50+ others receiving training and strategic support through program partners.
2021 companies will complete Foresight’s flagship accelerator programs – Launch and Deliver – plus industry and investor sessions to connect water innovators with key audiences to support their growth.
"Since we joined Foresight, we’ve quadrupled our team within the last year, experienced tremendous growth and successfully raised capital. Their advisors really understand deep tech, and how to align your business models and technology in an emerging market. I was really impressed with Foresight’s structure and follow-up."
Our vision is to establish Canada as the global leader in innovation, adoption, and export of sustainable water technologies.
