Vision, Mission, & Values

Vision: to be a respected decision-maker, exemplifying integrity and foresight in the best interests of Alberta.

Mission: as a quasi-judicial and regulatory agency, the NRCB makes impartial and knowledge-based decisions across two distinct mandates:

  • Under the Natural Resources Conservation Board Act, the NRCB decides if natural resource projects are in the public interest, considering social, environmental and economic effects, and
  • Under the Agricultural Operation Practices Act, the NRCB fulfills applications and compliance responsibilities, administers and advances policies, and conducts Board reviews for confined feeding operations.
  • Values: in achieving our mission, we honour the NRCB's core values of integrity, fairness, respect, excellence and service.
