AWA welcomes the large expansion of the Kitaskino Nuwenëné Wildland Provincial Park, approved by the Alberta government in late January 2022. Led by Mikisew Cree First Nation (MCFN), the governments of Canada and Alberta, Indigenous communities and three oil sands companies were involved in a significant collaborative effort that achieved this expansion,

We have spectacular wilderness in Alberta, much of it under some form of protection. Every square millimetre of it has had to be fought for - will always have to be fought for, forever and ever. The struggle to retain and repair wilderness is conducted not just by a few individuals, but by large numbers of committed people, from all walks of life, all working in various ways toward the same end. We need to be grateful to all of them.
