Know a great water steward? Get them some recognition – and $1000 cash!
The Council of the Federation (COF) Water Stewardship Council is calling for nominations for the 2014 Excellence in Water Stewardship Award.
The award recognizes and celebrates outstanding achievement and innovative practice and
leadership in the area of water stewardship. The award is presented to organizations, partnerships, businesses, institutions, municipalities and community groups.
The Excellence in Water Stewardship Award builds on the COF Water Charter. The Charter
was endorsed by Premiers in 2010, and guides the work of the Water Stewardship Council. It recognizes the collective obligation of Canadians and their governments to promote water conservation and protect water quality.
The COF will announce the award recipients on March 17, 2014 at the beginning of Canada Water Week. There will be one recipient in each province and territory. The Water Stewardship Council provides information and strategic advice to Premiers on key trends, issues and opportunities related to Canada’s water resources, and where appropriate, implements the commitments of the Water Charter.
Further information about the Excellence in Water Stewardship Award can be found at
www.councilofthefederation.ca. The deadline for nominations is January 15, 2014.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are about getting deals – GivingTuesday is about giving back.
GivingTuesday is a National Giving Day. It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favorite causes and think about others.
Everything we do at Land Stewardship Centre – from the resources we develop and the partnerships we cultivate, to the programs we build and the services we provide – serves a clear purpose: to raise awareness and encourage action. We take pride in providing the products, services and resources that help people become better stewards – but we can’t do it alone – so we want to encourage you to act today.
Your donation today to Land Stewardship Centre will help us continue to enable people and organizations to become better stewards through programs and products like our Green Acreages Guide, the Alberta Stewardship Network, the Watershed Stewardship Grant program and much more.
