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:
