Foundational Partner

ALUS Canada proudly recognizes Delta Waterfowl as a Foundational Partner. Delta was instrumental in launching the first-ever ALUS pilot project, which took place in Blanshard, Manitoba, from 2006 to 2009, and the second ALUS pilot, in Norfolk, Ontario, which remains the longest continually running ALUS program in Canada. Delta also co-wrote the “ALUS bible,” which laid out the original principles of the program. In 2016, ALUS left the Delta nest, becoming ALUS Canada, A Weston Family Initiative.
