About Us

The Milk River Watershed Council Canada is a broad partnership of interested and informed people living and working in the Milk River Watershed who provide leadership in watershed management and planning.  As a transboundary watershed, we foster good relationships with our Montana neighbours for the continued co-management of the Milk River waters. 

Our Mandate:

To engage governments, stakeholders, other partnerships, and the public in watershed assessment and watershed management planning, considering existing land and resource management planning processes and decision-making authorities.

We are an independent organization that supports the goals of Alberta's Water for Life Strategy in the Milk River Watershed.  These goals are:

  • Safe, secure drinking water supplies,
  • Reliable water supplies for a sustainable economy, and
  • Healthy aquatic ecosystems.
