Alberta’s Municipal Government Act (MGA) defines the way municipalities operate, including the services they offer, how they raise funds and more. The current MGA was introduced in the mid-1990s and was considered a model for municipal legislation in Canada. However, after nearly 20 years, it was determined the MGA should be revisited in order to meet the changing needs of Alberta’s communities.
A couple of months ago, the Modernized Municipal Government Act (MGA) was introduced in the legislature. Municipal Affairs is travelling to 20 locations across Alberta in June and July to discuss the proposed changes to the MGA through public sessions.
If you would like to provide input there are a couple of ways to get involved: by attending a public session or by providing written feedback. Visit the Municipal Affairs Website to let your voice be heard.
