About Us

The Alberta Lake Management Society (ALMS) was formally established on November 1991 and was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization under the Societies Act of Alberta in December 1991. In 1992, ALMS became the first Canadian Chapter of the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS). In October of 2001, the Government of Canada granted ALMS its “Charitable Organization” status. ALMS and its members are active in providing a link to individuals, local communities, educational institutions, governments and industry across Alberta who are interested in lake and watershed management.
