Water Security Agency Accepting Nominations for Stewardship Award
Dec. 20, 2013 - The Water Security Agency is now taking nominations for the Council of the Federation Excellence in Water Stewardship Award. The Award builds on the Council’s Water Charter which was endorsed by all Premiers in 2010, and recognizes the collective obligation of Canadians and their governments to be responsible water stewards.
“We are honoured to be a member and to participate in the Water Stewardship Council again this year,” Minister Responsible for the Water Security Agency Ken Cheveldayoff said. “As we work towards implementation of Saskatchewan’s 25 Year Water Security Plan, we recognize the need to promote water conservation and protect our province’s water quality.”
The Award will be announced on March 17, 2014 at the beginning of Canada Water Week. Saskatchewan’s 2014 winner will be awarded a $1,000 grant, a certificate signed by Premier Brad Wall and a distinctive glass award.
The deadline for nominations is Jan. 31, 2014 and organizations are invited to apply or nominate a worthy community group, institution, partnership, municipality or business for this Award. Further information is also available on the Water Security Agency’s website at wsask.ca.
The Council of the Federation comprises all provincial and territorial Premiers who established this award in 2012 to recognize and honour organizations that successfully demonstrate excellence, leadership and innovation in water stewardship. More information about the Council and the Water Charter is available at www.councilofthefederation.ca.
The Water Security Agency was created to lead implementation of the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan. It will improve water management capacity and service to individuals, businesses and communities across Saskatchewan. The Agency brings together all of the major responsibilities related to water quality and quantity.
