Compiling & Sharing Resources

The Alberta Center for Sustainable Rural Communities (University of Alberta) and Sustainability Resources Ltd. have developed a base inventory of initiatives and literature for water and watershed management in rural Albertan Communities. This website & resource directory is complemented by content-rich workshops that focus on knowledge and resource sharing.

We would like your participation in helping us create a robust resource center for water and watershed management. Visit our online Water Resources HERE!


What do you think?

This base inventory of resources has been developed for and by rural communities in Alberta specific to interventions around water quality and water quantity. We are looking to YOU to help us define the utility of these resources. 

Please log in, add resources,  comment, and discuss these Water Resources and help us to understand what resources you and your community needs to be an effective water manager! 



This is an online community network hosted for the development of relationships between rural community leaders, watershed councils, stewards, and citizens interested in advancing water & watershed management in Alberta.

Watershed Resources

The Alberta Watershed Toolkit Project provides interactive knowledge transfer between water leaders, academia and decision makers. The Project uses an interactive, accessible, and growing inventory of water management information resources, best management practices, and community stories in conjunction with experience based learning, mentorship, and a peer support network to improve the capacity of decision makers to manage water resources at the community level.

Community-Based Seminars

One of the key priorities of this initiative is the communication of available resources to Alberta water managers and decision makers. These professional development seminars and their content have been designed to address critical knowledge and capacity gaps requested by water leaders and rural community decision makers across Alberta. 

Seminars are coordinated by Sustainability Resources Ltd. in partnership with other agencies, communities, and industry partners and delivered by Resource Associates with guest speakers from Industry, Municipalities, and Watershed Councils.
