Roles and Responsibilities

Alberta Conservation Association holds special status as a delegated administrative organization (DAO), which means that we deliver responsibilities as outlined in the Wildlife Act and defined in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP).

In our role as a DAO, results from our population studies, surveys and assessments feed directly into AEP management plans and form the basis for fishing and hunting regulation changes and evaluations of new management strategies, such as the special walleye fishing license.
