NOTICE - NORTHWEST SPECIES AT RISK 

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.

Updates to the Growing Forward 2 On-Farm Solar Program

Applications are now being accepted for projects that were begun after April 15, 2017. This is a change from the previous policy where all projects had to be started after the application had been filled out. This will help anyone who has already started or completed a project, as well as those who want to start right away, before submitting an application, so as to be done their project before the Growing Forward 2 deadline of March 31, 2018.
 
Also a reminder that the program is open to anyone who has an electrical distribution rate class as farm, or agriculture related in any way. This means that even retired farmers, or those who live on acreages may be eligible to apply. They do not need to be active producers. They just need to find out what their distribution rate class is from their retailer.
 
If you know of anyone who will be benefited by this, let them know. If you have any other questions, I am happy to help.
 
Regards,
