Alberta Public Lands Act Regulation Survey

Posted September 8, 2010 by LSC

The province is proposing changes to the regulations within the Public Lands Act to support better land management and stewardship. The Public Lands Act prescribes what is legally allowed or prohibited on public land. The changes will set out specific rules, for example, how visitors can use public land, how the rules are enforced, and how appeals are heard.

Proposed Regulation
The proposed Public Lands Administration Regulation focuses on three key themes. Under each of these three themes, this consultation looks at the main aspects of the regulation:

A. Land Management
B. Compliance and Enforcement
C. Appeals and Dispute Resolution

Public consultation is a key step in the process to develop these new regulations. Public comments will be reviewed and considered in guiding the development of the new regulations.

Public Comment
The province will work with First Nations, the public, and stakeholders to update the regulation. In order to provide your feedback we encourage you to first read through the frequently asked questions for further information on the proposed regulation changes.

The survey provides an opportunity for you to submit feedback on the proposed amendments to the Public Lands Act regulation. It also provides an opportunity to provide general comments on the proposed regulation changes.

Albertans are invited to complete the survey regarding the proposed amendments either online or by mail from August 5, 2010 – September 17, 2010. Complete the survey online.

NSWA Watershed Forum September 9

Posted September 5, 2010 by LSC

Your Watershed. Your Voice.

Please join the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance (NSWA) and other stakeholders at a Forum to introduce the DRAFT Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the North Saskatchewan River Watershed in Alberta.

September 9, 2010
1:30 pm – 4:30 p.m.
Prince of Wales Armouries, 10440–108 Avenue, Edmonton

The NSWA is the Watershed Planning and Advisory Council (WPAC) for the North Saskatchewan River watershed under Water for Life: Alberta’s Strategy for Sustainability. It is a multi-stakeholder watershed planning partnership.

The NSWA has completed a wide range of technical studies on the North Saskatchewan River watershed: water supply, water use, water quality, groundwater, economics, cumulative effects assessment and multi-stakeholder engagement. These studies, plus consultations with stakeholder groups at a previous series of Watershed Management Planning Forums are the basis for this DRAFT watershed management plan.

The purpose of the DRAFT Integrated Watershed Management Plan (IWMP) for the North Saskatchewan River watershed is to protect the long-term supply and quality of water resources for future generations. The draft plan is comprehensive, and addresses a diverse range of water, land and development issues. It incorporates stakeholder interests and addresses the current policy context for watershed plan implementation.

Using feedback from a continuing series of meetings and forums, the NSWA will revise the DRAFT plan and submit it to the Government of Alberta in spring of 2011.

Come and add your voice and views to the discussion. RSVP to or phone 780.496.5577.
