Energy for Water

Energy for Water is a non-for profit initiative, with the goal of raising proceeds for individuals and families impacted by the catastrophic floods in the Ottawa area.


This spring, Ottawa declared a state of emergency when more than 42 square kilometres were flooded or put at risk. According to Stats Canada, over the past several weeks, over 2000 residences were flooded or are at risk of flooding.


Fairfield Watson, a Calgary-based benefits consulting firm, has partnered with Jet Hydrovac, Tornado Global Hydrovacs and Hydrovac Nation to create the Energy for Water initiative. The early stages of this initiative have raised upwards of $50,000 for resources to help those impacted by the flooding in Eastern Canada. In their recovery efforts, they have secured the services of a hydrovac truck to assist affected homes in flooded Ottawa neighborhoods.

Proceeds will be put towards the accidents and emergencies unit of the Red Cross. 100 percent of designated funds will support those affected by the Ottawa floods. 39244708_1558887678611433_r.jpeg
