The Board of Directors of both the Ontario Sewer and Watermain Construction Association (OSWCA) and the Greater Toronto Sewer and Watermain Contractors Association (GTSWCA) recently introduced Stephanie Bellotto as manager of government relations and communications for the two industry organizations.

Bellotto brings extensive experience in provincial government, with a strong background in communications, issues management, and stakeholder and media relations. She most recently served as Premier Doug Ford’s regional press secretary and held several positions across the Ford government over the past five years.

“We are thrilled to welcome Stephanie to our team,” expressed Patrick McManus, executive director of OSWCA and GTSWCA. “Her extensive knowledge of the provincial political landscape and communications expertise will be instrumental in advancing the interests of our members, particularly during this pivotal moment within the construction industry as we grapple with issues around investments, growth and workforce development.”

Bellotto will manage government and stakeholder relations, as well as the strategic communications for both associations, while fostering relations with the provincial government and municipalities across the province.


“The sector plays a vital role in building, servicing, and supplying core municipal infrastructure that communities across Ontario rely on, while supporting economic development and job creation,” said Bellotto. “I look forward to working with the OSWCA and GTSWCA Board of Directors and government partners to advance the priorities of our membership.”
