Nestlé Waters Canada Supports Ontario Government’s Water Pricing Review

To Press Releases listJan 18, 2017

The following is a statement from Debbie Moore, President and CEO of Nestlé Waters Canada

Nestlé Waters Canada fully supports the government’s commitment to invest in a secure water future for all Ontarians. We believe in doing what is right for communities, families and the environment. We respect the government’s process and the points-of-view of all stakeholders who will submit their comments through the EBR.  We will accept the final water price set through this process.  In principle, we believe all groundwater users should be treated equally, but we understand and appreciate that opinions differ regarding the rates various water users should pay.

Nestlé Waters Canada agrees that water sustainability is non-negotiable and all investments in groundwater research are a positive step toward our shared prosperity and a sustainable future. We are also encouraged by the direction the government is taking to support scientific research processes and policies to protect groundwater resources.

On behalf of our 300-plus employees who supply healthy, sustainably-produced water products to Canadian families, Nestlé Waters Canada will be fully engaged in the upcoming 60-day comment period.
