In Water we Trust? Evaluating water trusts for use in Alberta

Water trusts may be an appropriate policy tool to help sustain Alberta’s watersheds


Environmental Law Centre assessed the appropriateness of water trusts as a policy mechanism to protect Alberta’s water resources. A water trust can protect the flow of a river by purchasing the right to leave a certain amount of water instream. The Environmental Law Centre examined their relative merits compared with alternatives, and will prepare a policy framework to guide implementation of potential flow preservation tools.
