What is ABWRET? Alberta Wetland Rapid Evaluation Tool is a standardized method for assessing the important natural functions of all types of wetlands present in Alberta. Use of this method is a requirement through the Government of Alberta's Wetland Policy where Water Act approval is sought and wetlands will be permanently impacted. A strong understanding of this tool is required at three sign-off points in the Water Act approval process for wetlands: at the pre-disturbance stage, in the Wetland Assessment and Impact Report, at the wetland restoration design stage, in the Wetland Restoration Plan, and at the final verification stage, in the Verification Report.

Who should take this course?
  • Any professional wetland science practitioner who intends to sign-off on Wetland Assessment and Impact Reports (WAIRs), wetland restoration plans, or verification reports
  • Any wetland science practitioner who, although not able to sign-off, can participate on wetland assessment teams and wants to provide a level of due diligence when using ABWRET
