Protecting Instream Flow in Alberta’s Rivers – Navigating Churning Policy Waters

Oct 17 2015 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

The Faculty of Law and the Canadian Institute of Resources Law invite you to attend a free public lecture on Protecting Instream Flow in Alberta’s Rivers – Navigating Churning Policy Waters.

It is a simple truth that healthy aquatic ecosystems need sufficient water to meet instream flow needs. Yet the water in some Alberta’s rivers is fully or over-allocated to human uses which can impact and impair aquatic ecosystems. This lecture will describe why  we should be concerned about instream flow needs, especially in southern Alberta, explain what tools the Alberta Water Act provides to restore and protect instream flows, and set out the curbed use by the Government. The lecture will recount to date the ongoing and litigious saga of the non-profit Water Conservation Trust of Canada and its aim of utilizing the transfer and licensing provisions of the Water Act and the water market made possible by the Act to protect instream flows.
