Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN)

The Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) is winding down at the end of 2014 after five years of creating and sharing oil sands environmental management knowledge.  As one of our legacy projects we are conducting this survey to identify oil sands environmental management research and information needs.  The Population Research Laboratory at the University of Alberta is managing this on-line survey on a secure server at the University of Alberta.

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.
