Who We Are
The Athabasca Watershed Council (AWC) is a registered not-for-profit organization formed in August 2009. We work with academia, industry, environmental and stewardship groups, various levels of government, communities, citizens, and Indigenous peoples to provide timely and credible information about the Athabasca Watershed.
The Athabasca watershed is ecologically healthy, socially responsible, and economically sustainable.
The Athabasca Watershed Council demonstrates leadership and facilitates informed decision-making in the Athabasca watershed by bringing stakeholders and Indigenous peoples together to promote, foster respect, and plan for an ecologically healthy watershed that supports social responsibility and economic sustainability.

The AWC is a designated Watershed Planning and Advisory Council (WPAC) working in partnership with the Government of Alberta towards achieving the goals of the Water for Life strategy:
