Thank you to all that participated in the 2022 OPCEA Golf Tournament. It was an incredible experience connecting with some many consultants, contractors, facility operators, and OPCEA members from the Ontario water and wastewater industry. We had a fantastic turnout of 132 players enjoying a beautiful sunny day. A lot of fun was heard across the course with some groups recording extremely competitive scores. We had a tie for best score with a Wolseley Canada Inc. group and Vissers Sales Corp. group both posting a blistering 13 under par. The Visser Team had a better handicap and came out on top!!
Congratulations to Grant Stanley, Miles Long, Kevin Jackson and Craig Brooks for winning the 2022 OPCEA Golf Tournament. This team was also the winners of the Water for People Grand Prize that was donated by Flowpoint Environmental Systems.
A special thank you to all our tournament hole sponsors.
As mentioned during the tournament, OPCEA strives to support Water For People (WFP) at our yearly event. Water for People Canada would like to thank OPCEA Members for your ongoing support. The winner of the 50/50 draw was John Devlin from Aquafy Water Technologies, who graciously donated his winnings to WFP.
Thank you again for your support, we look forward to seeing everyone at the 2023 OPCEA Golf Tournament.

ConstructConnect partners with MasterSpec – and what this means for our OPCEA Members
ConstructConnect now partners with MasterSpec, a product of the American Institute of Architects and the leading software that houses specifications for various products and companies for architects to access and complete the writing of their own specifications.
For example, Wolseley can sign up for an enhanced listing that will list the specs and details of a butterfly valve. If an architect is looking to design a WasteWater Treatment Plant and is need of writing in butterfly valve, then a list of companies would be brought up matching his requirement. This leads to having a products in front of over 10,000 architects without having to reach out to them on a regular basis. Combined with ConstructConnect data, listing your products in MasterSpec will allow you to get in front of architects and engineers earlier, find specific projects where you are specified, and track your success.
This is typically meant for companies that have the ability to sell across Canada and US.
