Water is not only a resource, it is a life source. We all share the responsibility
to ensure a healthy, secure and sustainable water supply for our communities, environment
and economy - our quality of life depends on it.
Water for Life
The Government of Alberta's renewed Water for Life strategy has three main goals:
- Safe, secure drinking water
- Healthy aquatic ecosystems
- Reliable, quality water supplies for a sustainable economy
These goals will be met through knowledge and research, partnerships and water conservation.
The renewed strategy and corresponding action plan reaffirms Alberta’s commitment to the Water for Life approach: the wise management of our province’s water resources for the benefit of all Albertans.
