ALUS Canada Hires Agrologist Howie Bjorge

PRESS RELEASE                                                                                    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


TILLSONBURG, January 12, 2017—ALUS Canada is proud to announce the hiring of Howie Bjorge as ALUS Canada Agrologist.

Bjorge has extensive experience as an agrologist and agronomist. He served as an Agricultural Fieldman at the County of Vermilion River (CVR) since 2004, where he helped launch Alberta’s first ALUS program in 2010. Indeed, Bjorge has been instrumental in developing the ALUS program in western Canada.

“I’m excited to welcome Howie to the team,” said CEO Bryan Gilvesy. “He will work closely with our municipal partners in Alberta to take advantage of uniquely Albertan opportunities.”

What’s more, added Gilvesy, “by adding his wetland specialist capability to the staff compliment in Alberta, ALUS Canada is now poised to make rapid headway in the delivery of wetland mitigation.”


ALUS Canada, A Weston Family Initiative, is a national program dedicated to supporting farmers and ranchers who produce cleaner air, cleaner water, more biodiversity and other ecosystem services in their communities. There are currently more than 15,500 projects in six provinces, 720 participants, and 18,000 acres enrolled in the ALUS program. As a recent Clean50 and Alberta Emerald award winner—and ranked among the exclusive Clean16—ALUS Canada is a recognized leader in sustainability.
