Water North Coalition

Water is a precious resource. Access to clean water and well-managed wastewater systems is vital to the quality of life and economic well-being of northern Alberta.

Welcome to the Water North Coalition (WNC).

The WNC is a group of northern community leaders and water and wastewater partners working together to advance sustainable water systems in our northern communities through advocacy; education and awareness; and recruitment, training and retention.

Formed in 2014 with the support from the Northern Alberta Development Council, our coalition is open to all municipalities, commissions, First Nations and Metis settlements within the Northern Alberta Development Council (NADC) boundary. We are supported by expert water and wastewater professionals, operators, and various levels of government within the northern region.

WNC members meet twice a year to share information, identify workforce needs, get informed about the many issues impacting our communities, and then advocate for solutions to northern Alberta’s water and wastewater needs. Meetings feature presentations from experts on topics ranging from new water and wastewater technologies to drinking water safety plans. Advocacy efforts include support for water and wastewater operators and the communities they serve in our northern region.

The WNC is pursuing new partnerships, opportunities, and communication strategies to share its work and collaborate with others working on similar issues. If you are not a member of the WNC but want to learn more, check out this informative video by WNC Chair Bob Marshall, visit us on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn; check out our Brochure; or contact us at waternorthcoalition@gmail.com.

Be part of a movement to ensure a strong future for northern water and wastewater management.
