In April 2022, AWA participated in a kickoff meeting for the newly-formed Responsible Tailings Management Alliance (RTMA). The RTMA is a coalition of concerned parties from across the environmental sector – including both individuals and organizations – focusing on the issue of oil sands tailings and the imminent proposal for the release of tailings effluent into the Athabasca River. The introductory session was the first meeting for those interested in ongoing group participation, although a smaller steering committee has been meeting regularly over the past ten months to get this initiative off the ground. AWA was invited to participate in the inaugural meeting of the RTMA.
