Wetlands Alberta

Engaging Albertans to conserve and protect wetlands


Wetlands are one of the most productive ecosystems on the planet.

The Alberta NAWMP Partnership is pleased to announce the Landowner Guide to the Alberta Wetland Policy is now available!

April 3, 2023

The Landowner Guide to the Alberta Wetland Policy helps landowners understand their rights and responsibilities when working in and around wetlands on their farm or ranch under Alberta’s Wetland Policy. If you have wetlands on your property, or if you work with people who do, the Guide will help you identify the resources and programs that can be beneficial to your work.

Production of this Guide is part of AB NAWMP Partnership’s ongoing commitment to address the needs brought forward by the agricultural sector, as well as various working groups and members of AB NAWMP committees, since the implementation of the Alberta Wetland Policy.

We are grateful to all individuals and organizations who contributed their time and knowledge during the development of the document.
