About the program
Natural resource development has increased significantly in the oil sands area of northern Alberta, escalating the need to assess and understand the long-term cumulative effects of oil sands development on the environment. The Oil Sands Monitoring Program is a joint provincial and federal working partnership, including:
- Alberta Environment and Protected Areas
- Environment and Climate Change Canada
- regional First Nations and Métis organizations
- environmental agencies
- industry stakeholders
Together, these agencies provide comprehensive environmental monitoring data and information to ensure responsible development of Alberta’s oil sands area, and to support and promote environmental protection and enhancement.
