ALBERTA CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION
Section Two (2) of the Wildlife Regulations. The Alberta Wildlife Act provides the ACA with powers, duties and functions enabling it to carry out activities related to population inventories, development and enhancement of populations and habitats of wildlife, fish and endangered species in Alberta. It also includes the ability to establish and collect enhancement levies on hunting and angling licences in support of that work.
The organization delivers a wide range of projects, in eight program areas. The ACA has a highly qualified staff, and the flexibility of a Non Government Organization (NGO). ACA Staff are housed in Alberta government offices, which aids in information transfer and is cost effective, which helps direct more funds to on the ground projects. The ACA has a close working relationship with the Province of Alberta, a regional pulse on the landscape, a broad based member group, and a significant group of corporate partnerships. The ACA employs 75 staff across the province. Managing Director is Stephen Hull.
