Seeking New WSG Committee Members

Posted December 21, 2015 by LSC

Have you got what it takes? We’re recruiting for new Watershed Stewardship Grant Review Committee members.

The WSG Program

Since 2005, the Watershed Stewardship Grant (WSG) Program, made possible through the Government of Alberta’s Water for Life Strategy, has provided funding to the province’s stewardship community to support their grassroots efforts and community-based projects.

Since then, 127 grassroots watershed stewardship groups have received more than $1,700,000 to develop and implement nearly 300 projects in communities across Alberta, which have in turn contributed to ensuring:

  • A safe, secure drinking water supply,
  • Healthy aquatic ecosystems, and
  • Reliable, quality water supplies for a sustainable economy.

About the WSG Review Committee

The purpose of the volunteer WSG Review Committee is to review all applications, provide feedback and to make final decisions for fund allocation.

Committee Member Position Description

WSG committee members are expected to provide in-kind time to review applications and attend up to two (2) full day meetings per year. Meetings are typically held in a central Alberta location as determined by the membership. WSG committee members are supported by the Stewardship Program Coordinator

Committee Member Roles and Responsibilities

  • Review all eligible WSG applications provided to committee members by the Stewardship Program Coordinator in advance of the review meeting.
  • Attend the WSG review one day meeting to select successful applicants and allocate the grant funds for that specific year.
  • Participate in additional meetings or conference calls, as required, to assist with implementation of the WSG Program.

Qualifications

  • Knowledge of stewardship and community based stewardship groups in Alberta.
  • Detail oriented and committed to meeting deadlines.

Take the Water for Life Implementation Review Survey

Posted October 15, 2015 by LSC

The Alberta Water Council’s (AWC) Water for Life Implementation Review Committee is conducting a sector survey to help inform an assessment of the status, progress, and effectiveness of the Water for Life strategy.

The Water for Life strategy is a provincial water strategy adopted by Cabinet in November 2003. Since then, the Government of Alberta released a renewed Water for Life strategy in 2008 and a Water for Life Action Plan later in 2009.

This review focuses on progress made during the period of January 1st, 2012 to December 31st, 2015. Input will inform the committee as it makes recommendations to move the Water for Life strategy forward. The survey will be open until November 16th, 2015.
