As with the Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) and all Airsheds in Alberta, ACA approaches its work in accordance with the guiding principle of consensus decision-making whereby consensus is reached when there is unanimous agreement amongst all stakeholders. The process seeks to ensure that each person is able to accept the outcome of the decision made with the aim of finding the most optimal solution to serve the best interests of all. This approach tends to lead to more innovative decisions that are more enduring over the longer term, in comparison to those made via more conventional means.
