2021 Strategic Planning Process

The Alberta Whitewater Association is embarking on an Strategic Planning process with our members, clubs, and key partners. We recognize summer is a busy time for people on the water, but it's also the time when paddling is freshest in our minds. We will engage in both survey and virtual in-person formats to meet people's needs.

We are working with the Alberta Community Development Unit to build the Strategic Plan. They have been supporting organizations around the Province with creative solutions to the lack of in-person meetings.

Participate a little. Participate a lot. We welcome your engagement and ideas on how we can grow our sport!

Current Survey:

           Environmental Scanning Survey - June 4-18

You will find links to the Surveys and Zoom meetings in the tabs below.
