The Athabasca Watershed
Our watershed. Our responsibility.
We are a Watershed Planning and Advisory Council (WPAC) working in partnership with the Government of Alberta, stakeholders, and Indigenous peoples to achieve the three goals of the Water for Life strategy. We work to build relationships, share information, and inform the planning and policy decisions that affect the Athabasca River watershed. Our vision is that the Athabasca River watershed is ecologically healthy, supporting resilient communities and a sustainable economy.
The Athabasca Watershed Council acknowledges that the Athabasca watershed underlays portions of Treaty 6, 8 and 10 territories. We make this acknowledgment as an act of Truth and Reconciliation, showing our respect for the land and the Indigenous peoples who came before us. We also acknowledge and respect the languages and culture of today’s First Nation and Métis people, whose presence continues to enrich the Athabasca watershed.
