We are the
Alberta Irrigation Districts Association

Irrigation Infrastructure including 8,000 kilometres of canals and pipelines and 57 water storage reservoirs, convey water to the arid region of southern Alberta providing water for food production, communities, business, wildlife and wetlands, and recreation opportunities. The presence of this irrigation infrastructure significantly influences the economic, social and environmental well-being of the region and provides great value to the Province of Alberta


AIDA ensures the vitality and sustainability of irrigated agriculture in Alberta by coordinating joint efforts of irrigation districts and working collaboratively with stakeholders.

AIDA promotes a greater understanding and appreciation of irrigation in government and society, to secure legislative and social support.

Together with our members, AIDA supports the management of Southern Alberta’s water resources by: 

     • promoting the use of efficient irrigation and water management practices;
     • participating in critical research and monitoring projects
     • advocating for favourable irrigation policy and legislation;
     • actively promoting the benefits of the irrigation sector.
