The members of the Regional Public Works Commissioners of Ontario (RPWCO) plan, design, build, operate and maintain the Public infrastructure (Transportation, Water, Wastewater, Solid Waste, Park and Public Buildings) that serve the vast majority of citizens and visitors to the Province of Ontario.
While RPWCO is made up of a relatively small number of municipalities, they provide the full spectrum of Public Works infrastructure and services to over 80% of the population of Ontario. Members of the RPWCO group are generally comprised of former upper tier municipalities, and those cities and single tier municipalities with a population of greater than 100,000.
RPWCO's Strategy Committee and three Sub-Committees identify priority issues, develop common positions and communicate these to key decision makers. RPWCO also works to enhance awareness of infrastructure and service delivery issues to key decision makers.
