MISSION: ALUS Canada's mission is to enable Canadians to provide direct support to a national network of farmers and ranchers delivering ecosystem services in their communities, including clean are, clean water, carbon sequestration, erosion control, flood mitigation, pollinator support and wildlife habitat.
VISION: Community-developed and farmer-delivered, ALUS sustains agriculture, wildlife and natural spaces for all Canadians, one acre at a time.
WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO:
In 2014 we received the Ministers Award of Excellence in Innovation for our work with the ALUS program from Alberta Municipal Affairs. The award was presented to us at both the annual Alberta Urban Municipalities (AUMA) Conference and the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts & Counties (AAMDC) Conference. Thank you to all our ALUS supporters, participants and staff for a great job! The program wouldn't be the same without our partner agencies: Delta Waterfowl, ACA, ESRD, and Cows & Fish.
