A business offering unique innovative solutions to environmental challenges has earned the title “Entrepreneur of the Year”, an award given out annually by Community Futures Ontario.


Kevin Bossy and Mike Roberts are the co-owners of Bishop Water Technologies in Renfrew, Ontario, which is a leader in clean-tech waste management specializing in sludge and slurry management for municipalities and industries including food production, pulp and paper, mining and agriculture and aquaculture. Change is constant and with today's technology change is happening more rapidly than ever; however this has not been the case with the wastewater industry. Controlling the power of water is a daunting task, but that’s exactly what Bishop Water Technologies is doing using Geotube® technology.


The ability of Bishop Water Technologies to modify the waste treatment flow within an existing footprint rather than the need for a new facility allows municipality or the business to achieve higher levels of treatment at a lower cost.


These entrepreneurs were chosen from several nominees, all successful businesses that received loans and counseling from CFDCs.  Bishop Water Technologies won the prestigious award because of their innovative work. They have been recognized over the years with many awards; most recently the 2015 Minister’s Award for Environmental Excellence. Bishop Water Technologies was nominated by the Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation. 


Bishop Water Technologies has worked with upwards of 25 large and small communities and municipalities creating innovative and cost effective solutions for them” said Diane McKinnon, Executive Director of the Renfrew County CFDC. “Their commitment to going over and above for their clients and the communities they serve makes us proud to have been able to work with them to help make it happen.”
