Abstract:

In September 2008, the Minister of the Environment Rob Renner announced that the Government of Alberta would re-examine Alberta's approach to the allocation, licencing, and transfer of water rights. The purpose of this paper is to outline a proposed blueprint for addressing the growing challenges associated with water demand and supply and associated impacts to people, industry, and the environment. We consider what is possible in Alberta and refer briefly to key issues while providing some general background and context. This paper is not meant to be an exhaustive accounting of all of the water supply and demand challenges facing Alberta. Share the Water aims to inspire Albertans to participate in the discussion about Alberta's water future.
