Water and Environmental Protection for Albert County (WEPAC) is a grassroots citizen group encompassing the communities of Hillsborough, Riverside-Albert, Alma and Elgin in Southeastern New Brunswick, Canada. We’ve been providing education on the potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing and shale gas and oil development in our area since 2011.

While primarily concerned about fracking, we also provide advocacy, public information sessions, speaking events, and workshops on other issues such as industrial forestry, glyphosate spraying, and climate change. We believe that, as communities, we must all advocate for better care of our natural heritage to ensure a vibrant future for our children.

Our slogan is ‘Protecting What’s Important‘.

WEPAC is a member of the New Brunswick Anti-Shale Gas Alliance and the New Brunswick Environmental Network. We work collaboratively with other Anglophone, Acadian and First Nations communities with an aim to strengthen our cultural relationships and better protect the natural environment we all share.
