The Eastern Athabasca Regional Monitoring Program (EARMP) was initiated in 2011 under the Province of Saskatchewan's Boreal Watershed Initiative. One of the primary goals of the Boreal Watershed Initiative is to assess the ecological integrity of Saskatchewan's northern watersheds in order to address potential environmental concerns and to identify sustainable management practices in the region. It was designed to address a foreseen gap in long-range environment information and potential cumulative impacts downstream of uranium mining and milling operations and seven communities in the Athabasca region of northern Saskatchewan. The joint environmental monitoring program is funded by the Province of Saskatchewan, in partnership with Cameco Corporation and AREVA Resources Canada Inc. The monitoring program and study framework include two sub-programs: a community program and a technical program.

In addition to the above programs, a fundamental objective of this program is to provide public access to all information collected and report the findings yearly to the communities in the Athabasca Basin and to the general public. To that end, all the data and reports are available electronically for download at: www.earmp.ca/reports. Additionally, updates and results regarding the program are shared with all of the Athabasca communities annually at the Northern Saskatchewan Environmental Quality Committee (NSEQC) meetings.
