Work: WaterPortal Business and Technology Directory

Water management challenges and opportunities are prevalent throughout Alberta, crossing many jurisdictions and impacting various stakeholders, industries and communities. Water plays a significant role in Alberta’s energy, agricultural and environmental sectors, and is a strong driver for technology development and innovation. 

In 2013, Alberta’s GDP was $331.9 billion and much of the economic activity that generated this GDP required water as an input, either directly or indirectly. Sectors that rely on water include energy (24.6% of 2013 GDP), manufacturing and forestry (6.9% of 2013 GDP), agriculture (1.9% of 2013 GDP), business and commercial services (10.6% of 2013 GDP), tourism and consumer services (4.4% of 2013 GDP) and health (5.0% of 2013 GDP). These statistics show that over half (53.4%) of Alberta’s GDP depends directly or indirectly on water. 

WaterPortal Business and Technology Directory was created in conjunction with a report to act as a resource for the Government of Alberta and water technology innovators in the province. The Directory provides a comprehensive collection of information on water technology and consulting companies, researchers and initiatives focused on innovation and commercialization.  The Directory is intended to act as a resource to ultimately help bolster the province’s technology capabilities in the global water industry.
