CLRA/ACRSD: Building a nation-wide community of practitioners to reclaim and remediate environmentally-disturbed lands and waterways.
The Canadian Land Reclamation Association/Association canadienne de réhabilitation des sites dégradés (CLRA/ACRSD) is a non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1975. The Association encourages personal and corporate involvement where reclamation or rehabilitation of disturbed lands is planned or implemented.
Its members meet annually for technical discussion, information exchange and personal interaction. Local activities occur in Alberta, Atlantic Canada, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec where there are active provincial chapters.
The CLRA/ACRSD provides its members with up-to-date technical information through the publication of its newsletters, the magazine Canadian Reclamation and proceedings of its annual conferences. These publications allow the organization to have an informal, instructional role in the decision-making processes of reclamation/rehabilitation projects and to act as a forum for the dissemination of ideas and information pertinent to reclamation activities.
If you or your company are involved with or interested in reclamation of land or watercourses, environmental guidelines and/or enforcement, decommissioning, research (products, methods or equipment), or education, consider becoming a member of Canada's only national association concerned solely with reclamation.
The CLRA would like to acknowledge the passing of a fellow industry professional from Calgary, AB Mr. Lin Callow. As a professional biologist, Lin spent his career working on environmental management for energy and mining projects.
In his honour, and in recognition of his desire to bring together diverse interests to protect the environment, the L.T.L. (Lin) Callow Memorial Award has been established.

Being nominated to serve on a Board of Director’s for an organization is an honor. It is recognition that, although you may excel in your field, you exhibit other characteristics which are seen as beneficial to furthering the goals and agenda of the organization. For some, being on a board is a resume building activity; you expect to attend a few meetings a year and then vote of what information people give you. Read more...
