Who We Are
The Governments of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Canada are signatory parties of the Prairie Provinces Water Board (PPWB). The Government of Canada has representatives from Environment Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. Provincial governments are represented by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, Saskatchewan Watershed Authority, Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure, and Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship. Each of the governments has one regular representative on the Board and each of the three permanent Committees (Committee on Hydrology, Committee on Groundwater, Commitee on Water Quality). If the Regular Member cannot attend, then the Alternate Member will represent the government on the Board or Committee. In addition, the Committee on Hydrology has two regular and two alternate members from Environment Canada to represent both hydrometric and meteorological monitoring that is conducted by the department for the PPWB.
The Directory provides the contact information and can be downloaded from the right side bar menu.
Board members are senior officials engaged in the administration of water resources in each provincial or federal department.
The PPWB has three permanent Standing Committees (Committee on Hydrology, Committee on Water Quality, and Committee on Groundwater) that conduct technical work, such as data analysis and provide advice to the Board. From time to time, the Board will form Ad Hoc Committees or hire consultants/contractors to investigate or report on other issues.
The Secretariat provides technical and administrative support to the Board and Committees.Top of Page
