Aquality is pleased to announce that registration for “Alberta Wetlands: From Classification to Policy” is now open.

The course material includes wetland classification, the ecosystem roles and functions of wetlands, wetland hydrology, and an examination of characteristics of peatlands and mineral wetlands. Federal, provincial, and municipal policies, regulations and legislations affecting wetlands in Alberta, particularly the Alberta Wetland Policy (2013), will be discussed. Wetland assessments including both desktop delineations and field assessments, ABWRET assessments, and economic valuation of wetlands will be examined. Wetland avoidance, mitigation, compensation/replacement guidelines and WAIR/WAIF applications will also be addressed.

This two-day course will take place March 27-28, 2024 (offered online via Zoom and in classroom at our Edmonton office). The course will run from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm both days.

This comprehensive course is designed to help consultants, industry professionals, resource managers, not-for-profit organizations, and government regulators understand the theoretical component used in wetland assessments.
