Water is not only a resource, it is a life source. We all share the responsibility to ensure a healthy, secure and sustainable water supply for our communities, environment and economy - our quality of life depends on it.
The Government of Alberta's renewed Water for Life strategy has three main goals:
- Safe, secure drinking water;
- Healthy aquatic ecosystems; and
- Reliable, quality water supplies for a sustainable economy.
These goals will be met through knowledge and research, partnerships and water conservation.
The renewed strategy and corresponding action plan reaffirms Alberta’s commitment to the Water for Life approach: the wise management of our province’s water resources for the benefit of all Albertans.
Alberta's water belongs to all Albertans. How we manage it for the future is vitally important to us all.
Ideas shared during the community sessions, through emails and online workbook submissions will be compiled into a "What we heard" report to be released this summer.
Thank you for taking the time to join the water conversation.
Canada Water Week runs from March 18 to 24, 2013, as an opportunity for Canadians to learn more about how they should use this vital resource.
