Our Committees

Working together to make resource extraction safe and profitable

Our committees are the backbone of the work that the Alberta Chamber of Resources does: they tackle diverse and important issues within Alberta’s resource industries. Committee members come from a variety of industries, bringing expertise and a sense of cooperation.

Among Canadian and international resource industry organizations, the Alberta Chamber of Resources is unique in its focus on Alberta; in bringing together companies across sectors and functions, as well as creating space for communication and collaboration among members and between resource companies and development stakeholders. Committees are open to all member-company employees.

The focus of ACR is to cooperatively develop solutions to the challenges and opportunities of resource development in Alberta. This is achieved through the actions of our member committees and working groups.

If you are interested in updates or progress, or are looking to join a committee or working group, please contact admin@acr-alberta.com.
