Position: Project Manager (Facilitation)
Organization: Alberta Water Council and Clean Air Strategic Alliance
Location: Edmonton, Alberta
In 2017, the business administration and human resources that supported the Alberta Water Council and the Clean Air Strategic Alliance were amalgamated to optimize operational efficiencies between the organizations. These multi-stakeholder organizations provide their members with provincial scale advice in water management and air quality management respectively. Both organizations follow similar processes, however, remain independent with distinct mandates. . Under the direction of separate boards of directors, multi-stakeholder teams are created to address water and air quality management issues and identify potential solutions through a consensus-based decision-making process.
The Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) is a not-for-profit society incorporated under the Alberta Societies Act. Its multi-stakeholder membership of senior representatives from various governments, industries and non-government organizations (including health and environment groups) work collaboratively and use consensus decision making to develop and apply a comprehensive air quality management system for Alberta. See http://www.casahome.org for more information.
The Alberta Water Council (AWC) is also a not-for-profit society incorporated under the Alberta Societies Act. It is a partnership born from the Government of Alberta’s Water for Life strategy with a multi-stakeholder membership comprised of members from various governments, industries and non-government organizations. The AWC’s primary tasks are to monitor and steward implementation of the Water for Life strategy, champion achievement of the strategy’s three outcomes, and to provide provincial-level water management advice to its members.

Lastly, the PM manages multiple projects and works with teams to produce deliverables including policy recommendations, guidance documents, written reports, and toolkits, among others.
