The International Erosion Control Association Region One (IECA) has formed a Canadian chapter. The association is setting the chapter up to serve as Canada’s “essential educational and networking resource for stormwater management, erosion and sediment control and stream protection and restoration.”
“We believe that the large and diverse community in Canada will find value and benefits in the IECA programs and initiatives,” said IECA Executive Director Sharan Wilson, who was appointed to the organization’s top leadership position in January 2016.
Beyond educational endeavors, the Canadian chapter will also advocate on behalf of the country’s erosion and sediment control and stormwater industries.
