The Canadian Prairie and Northern Section was formed in 1987 after a long affiliation with the Pacific Northwest International Section. The Canadian Prairie and Northern Section is geographically one of the largest sections of the A&WMA, encompassing the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut, and the Northwest Territories.

It is our vision to be the premier organization promoting air and waste management within our geographical region.
