Alberta’s six northwestern municipalities have come together to form the Northwest Species at Risk (NWSAR) Committee. The six municipalities that form the NWSAR are:

Town of High Level
Mackenzie County
County of Northern Lights
Clear Hills County
Town of Rainbow Lake
Town of Manning

After learning of the Government of Alberta’s proposal to permanently protect 1.8 million hectares of land for caribou in northwest Alberta, Councillors from the area’s six municipalities leapt into action and formed the Northwest Species at Risk (NWSAR) Committee to ensure local voices were heard. The committee created a report for the federal and provincial governments to consider when implementing plans to protect the Woodland Caribou- which are a threatened species. The Committee wants to see protection plans be effective but also consider the socio-economic impacts to our communities, so that we can be prosperous and keep jobs here. The committee believes that the caribou can be protected without creating a provincial park and even protect them more effectively without creating a park. Through the Committee’s hard work over the past year, a socio-economic analysis, the collection of scientific data and extensive multi-stakeholder consultations, a report was created with ten specific recommendations for responsible caribou recovery.
A strong, unified voice of municipal leaders and area residents is vital in responsible protection of all species at risk.

Due to substantial weight of brushing equipment, a crossing agreement is required before performing work on the right-of-way. Contact TransCanada to apply for an agreement.



Brushing poses a significant risk to the integrity of the pipeline as it removes soil cover. Before brushing, contact you local One-Call Centre- it's a FREE service! TransCanada will send a representative to mark the location of the pipeline facilities and must be present to oversee the work. 



Ditching poses a significant risk to the integrity of the pipeline as it removes soil cover. Before ditching, contact your local One-Call Centre. Trans Canada will send a representative to mark the location of the pipeline facilities and must be present to oversee the work.
