Webinar: What's Fair in Water and Wastewater Service Pricing

The Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation (OFNTSC) is sharing the chance to view a webinar being provided by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) - Community Infrastructure Partnership Program. The Webinar titled "What's Fair in Water and Wastewater Service Pricing" will take place on Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 2pm (EST). The webinar will be presented in English only.

Reaching an arrangement on pricing for water and water services in a First Nation–municipal joint service agreement is one of the most challenging negotiation issues. John Kingsbury from the Ontario Clean Water Agency will tackle these key questions:

  • What costs should be included?
  • How should costs be apportioned?
  • What are fixed costs and variable costs?
  • How can communities jointly address asset management?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of equity ownership versus user fees? 

John has 20 years’ experience in the water and sewage sector working with municipalities and First Nations on developing joint service agreements and addressing issues such as costing, reporting, performance factors and scope of services.
