Established by the World Plumbing Council in 2010, World Plumbing Day is now a fixture on calendars , as industry associations join other plumbing organizations and groups around the globe celebrate the important, essential work of plumbing professionals.
“The celebration of World Plumbing Day is an opportunity to reflect on the important role the plumbing sector plays in our day-to-day lives, and the skilled men and women plumbers that have continued to serve this industry throughout the pandemic,” said Dave Holek, president and chair of the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada. “At the same time, and certainly in the context of a global pandemic, it is even more important that we recognize those systems that are so vital to our health, safety, and well-being. So much of our daily lives is impacted by our plumbing systems, and we are proud to celebrate everyone involved in this essential industry and sector.”
According to the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH), there is an important link between good quality plumbing, health, environmental sustainability and, increasingly, economic prosperity.
You might not recognize all the names, but CIPH member companies and their more than 25,000 employees from coast to coast are making Canadian lives better every day.
- Canadian plumbing and heating manufacturers and distributor provide the products and technologies that deliver clean, safe drinking water as well as comfortable and efficient home heating. Modern plumbing and heating products allow Canadians to have fresh, safe running water and warm homes.
- CIPH member companies, and their employees, care about the world we live in. Member companies invest heavily in research and standards development to produce water and energy saving products and systems.
- CIPH and its member companies and their employees have helped thousands of Canadian families move into decent and affordable homes through our 25+ year partnership with Habitat for Humanity Canada. That’s on top of the contributions that members and their employees make in their own communities to Habitat and other organizations.
- CIPH members are at the forefront of developing and continually improving products and technologies to help to safeguard people’s health and safety at home and in public spaces; from products like hands-free faucets and toilets that can reduce exposure to germs and viruses to hydronic (hot water) heating systems that heat homes and businesses comfortably and efficiently.
