About

The Bow River Basin Council is a non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization, which deals largely with the development of water management planning and policy advice to decision makers; and also the promotion of water management education and awareness. The Council acknowledges that the water resources represent our lifeline and must be conserved and protected. It seeks to ensure that multiple uses are balanced and the needs of all stakeholders are met. But above all a healthy ecosystem is paramount.

The Council’s ultimate goal is to participate in or promote activities that will help the Bow River Basin achieve the highest water quality of any highly populated river basin in Canada. The BRBC works with partners to establish the Bow River Basin as the best managed watershed in the world. Over 200 members and participants are involved with the BRBC through their numerous committees and projects.
