About CBWA

What is the CBWA

The Canadian Bottled Water Association (CBWA) was founded in 1992 to represent the Canadian bottled water industry and to ensure a high standard of quality for bottled water. CBWA is the trade association for the bottled water industry in Canada. Our Members produce and distribute about 85 per cent of the bottled water sold in Canada.


The CBWA is the Canadian chapter of the International Council of Bottled Water Associations.


The CBWA publishes various materials on bottled water and the industry, such as the periodical WaterPower, published twice a year. The association also organizes an annual convention and trade show with lectures and seminars of interest to its members, as well as various training sessions (HACCP, certified operators training and testing, etc).



The Canadian Bottled Water Association (CBWA) supports and promotes bottled water as a healthy, safe and convenient food product. CBWA members are committed to environmentally responsible practices.



The CBWA and its members educate, inform and encourage dialogue between the industry, government, consumers and other stakeholders.
