Engaging Rural Municipalities: Forum Final Report

During the fall and winter of 2008 – 2009 the NSWA presented integrated watershed management planning information in rural municipalities. This culminated in a Rural Municipal Forum in February 2009. The Forum represented the formal launch of sector-based stakeholder engagement within the watershed for a discussion around the development of an Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the North Saskatchewan River (NSR) in Alberta.

Representatives from 16 of the 20 rural municipalities within the NSR watershed attended the Forum, plus representatives from urban municipalities, counties outside the watershed, observers and the Government of Alberta. This report summarizes the discussions from this forum, the comments from feedback forms, and recommendations for next steps with respect to expanding stakeholder engagement to more sectors.
