Background and Eligibility
Since 2005, the Ontario Waterpower Association has annually recognized the outstanding contribution of an individual to the advancement of waterpower in Ontario. The recognition takes place at the Power of Water Conference with an award named after the late Ronald R. Dodokin. Mr. Ronald R. Dodokin was a driving force in Ontario’s waterpower industry in the 1980s and 1990s, defining the entrepreneurial spirit, commitment, and passion that typifies waterpower proponents. He led the creation of the former “Waterpower Association of Ontario", an organization that shared many of the same objectives as the OWA. Any individual is eligible to receive the award, provided that he or she is nominated by a representative member of the OWA. OWA employees are not eligible to receive or nominate. A Selection Committee from the OWA Board of Directors will review the nominations. The 2023 award will be presented at the annual Power of Water Canada Conference on the evening of May 30th, 2023. The recipient will be notified in advance of the presentation. The deadline for award nominations is April 21, 2023.
