SPWA stands for the Saskatchewan Public Works Association. It is an Association of public works officials from municipal agencies across the province as well as companies and suppliers of consulting services, technologies, and equipment used in typical public works areas of responsibility. These areas include road and street maintenance, solid waste collection and disposal, municipal water and wastewater operations, storm water management, transportation, traffic control, fleet maintenance, building and grounds maintenance and other related areas.

The Association strives to promote professionalism in the public works field and provide a network through which members can share and receive useful information. Membership in the association provides an opportunity to meet other public works officials who share common responsibilities and services. The networking and exchange of information can help members improve the efficiency and operations of any local public works department.


National Public Works Week (NPWW)
May 17 - 23, 2015

Community Begins Here

There would be no community without the quality of life public works provides. There would be no community to police and protect, no public to lead or represent. Public works allows the world as we know it to be. The 2015 National Public Works Week theme "Community Begins Here," speaks to the essential nature of Public Works services in support of everyday quality of life.

CPWA is pleased to announce the CPWA National Public Works Week awards program for 2015. This is the 55th year of celebration for National Public Works Week in North America. Since its beginning in 1960, agencies, municipalities, and regions have used this week to educate and inform the public about the essential role that public works plays in the quality of their community life. Equally important are promoting the choice of public works as a career choice for the working force of the future and recognizing those whose who currently serve in these crucial public roles.

Once again, CPWA will recognize “first time entries” in their own “first time” submitter category as well their own appropriate size category.
The categories for 2015 will be:

First Time Entry: Any community submitting for the first time.

Small Centres: Populations: 75,000 and Under

Medium Centres: Populations: 75,001 - 250,000

Large Centres/Metro Centres: Populations: 250,001 and over

In fact, every municipality celebrating National Public Works Week is a winner! Public works awareness is an awfully good thing to spread among our citizens, legislators, and especially our young people who will be the engineers, public works managers, specialists and workers of tomorrow.

We invite and encourage your agency and community to join in the celebration and to join the CPWA National Public Works Week awards program.

What makes APWA/CPWA different from other professional associations?

“APWA engages the full spectrum of public works professionals, and they’re all equal stakeholders. I’m a member of other professional organizations but don’t see the rate of return that APWA brings.” — Kurt Corey, Director of Public Works, City of Eugene, OR

“What I find by being a member of APWA is its 'one stop shopping'. Other associations can specialize in their areas of expertise, which is great, but what APWA does for me is that I can go to one place and find all the information on any topic I need in the very diverse world of public works.” — Brenda Herrman, Director of Public Works (retired), City of Hays, KS
