Alberta Site Rehabilitation Program

With the Alberta Government’s site rehabilitation program launching May 1, 2020 there are significant opportunities to create a positive impact on the environment and the economy.

At Tervita we recognize the main goal of this program is to Get Albertans Back to Work in Support of Our Industry.

To make this program a success we all need to work together.
