Organization: North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance
Location: Edmonton, Alberta
The North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance is seeking a dynamic, experienced and highly motivated person to lead the organization's future efforts in developing and implementing solutions in watershed management.
The North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance (NSWA) Society is a multi-stakeholder watershed planning and improvement partnership formed in 1997, and incorporated as non-profit society in 2000. The NSWA provides a forum for sharing information and addressing issues that affect the North Saskatchewan River (NSR) watershed in Alberta. The NSWA was granted charitable status in 2016.
In 2005, the NSWA was appointed by Alberta Environment to serve as the Watershed Planning and Advisory Council (WPAC) for the North Saskatchewan River under Water for Life: Alberta’s Strategy for Sustainability (2003). The NSWA completed two major initiatives in 2012: The Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the North Saskatchewan River in Alberta (IWMP), and The Vermilion River Watershed Management Plan. Key strategic priorities for NSWA are to implement these plans by continuing to work closely with regional partners, to assist local groups in the development of new watershed plans, and to provide technical and policy advice on watershed management to various sectors and stakeholders. The NSWA has developed three municipal watershed partnerships to further guide this work: the Vermilion River Watershed Alliance; the Sturgeon River Watershed Alliance; and the Headwaters Alliance.
