   In collaboration with the Ontario Section of A&WMA, the event will also feature a full day of discussions specifically focused on Ontario's unique odour and noise nuisance issues and land-use planning. This emphasis on local concerns is vital, allowing international attendees to gain insights into how such issues are handled at a regional level.
