APPI Municipal Government Act (MGA) Update
Municipal Government Act (MGA) Update - On May 31, 2016 the Government of Alberta (GOA) tabled Bill 21: Modernized Municipal Government Act in the Legislature. That legislation was the result of over three years of consultations with municipalities and stakeholders. Those regulations will be publicly posted on the GOA MGA Review website (http://mgareview.alberta.ca/) in draft form early in 2017, grouped together by theme (governance, planning and development, and assessment and taxation). Stakeholders will have only 60 days to provide comment and feedback on all of the draft regulations.
