Welcome to the Alberta Water Council

Established in 2004 and incorporated as a not-for-profit society in 2007, the Alberta Water Council is a multi-stakeholder partnership with 24 Members from governments, industry, and non-government organizations. Its primary task is to monitor and steward implementation of the Alberta’s Water for Life strategy and to champion achievement of the strategy’s three goals:

  • safe, secure drinking water supply
  • healthy aquatic ecosystems
  • reliable, quality water supplies for a sustainable economy

Guided by its vision of all Albertans working together to ensure safe, healthy and abundant water for future generations, the Alberta Water Council brings together the expertise and experience of its members, under a consensus based partnership. Our mission is to provide leadership, expertise and sector knowledge to engage and empower industry, non-governmental organizations, and governments to achieve the outcomes of the Water for Life strategy. This is supported by the Council's values of collaboration, fairness, innovation, respect, timeliness, transparency and trust.
