2023 Annual Report

A Message from Our CEO

The 2022-23 year for Water Ambassadors Canada allowed our charity to become whole again after coming out of the pandemic period. A return to deploying Water Teams, expanded in-person fundraising events, and pivoting in a new direction with an additional office for outreach across the country all helped us to reach the benchmark of providing approximately 500,000 people with access to clean water during WAC’s twenty-year history.

Water Teams supported multiple projects in Guatemala as well as Honduras with well drilling and well repair. Additionally, we had individual Water Ambassadors in the DR Congo and Kenya lead with new chlorinator distributions and maintenance as well as bleach maker installation. Efforts were rounded out with filter distribution in multiple countries.

As Canadians returned to a new normal post pandemic, we challenged ourselves with expanded fundraising events through charity golf, expanded Fall Water Walks, and our new signature fundraising event via the Wet Gala in the spring.

Committed to growth, we have planted a new outreach office in Calgary. The goal of truly becoming Canada’s leading charity for access to clean water globally means reaching out to all Canadians. Having Calgary and Toronto as our foundations for outreach, will allow us to take next steps in the growth of Water Ambassadors Canada.

Our milestone anniversary of twenty years culminated with the achievement of reaching half a million people with clean water during that time. As we reflected on the past generation of people receiving access to clean water, it has bolstered our vision of what is to come during the next decade for Water Ambassadors Canada.

Better Every Day,

Brian Johns
CEO, Water Ambassadors Canada
