The Ontario Chapter Young Professional Group:

Recruitment, development and involvement of Young Professionals (YPs) are critical to the future of SWANA. That’s why SWANA developed a Regional Representative Initiative to foster YP participation at the local level through a team of regional reps and chapter liaisons. Ontario has its own chapter with YP liaisons. These liaisons are currently working in the solid waste industry and who want to grow and connect with other Young Professionals in the Solid Waste Industry.
