Wood Buffalo Environmental Association Approves 2014/2015 Operating Budget

FORT MCMURRAY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 8, 2014) - The Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA) is pleased to announce that its Board, comprised of 38 members from industry, government, Aboriginal groups, and ENGOs, today passed a budget of $13.7 million for the 2014/2015 fiscal year.

While the approved $13.7 million budget leaves WBEA with a $2.9 million shortfall from the approved $16.6 million work plan; the Board has instructed WBEA's Executive Director and Governance Committee to continue to work to secure additional funding in order to execute those unfunded projects in the 2014/2015 work plan.

WBEA will work in cooperation with all partners within the new monitoring framework to continue to deliver high quality, science based monitoring in the oil sands region.
