The Government of Alberta has scheduled regional MGA review consultations to give Albertans a face-to-face opportunity to share their thoughts. Each regional session will include specific times for elected officials, municipal administrators, the public, business and community groups.

The dates are as follows:

  • Edmonton February 5-7 
  • Fort McMurray February 12-14 
  • Vermilion February 19-21 
  • Lethbridge February 26-28 
  • Edson March 5-7 
  • Red Deer March 12-14 
  • Brooks March 26-28 
  • Grande Prairie April 2-4 
  • Calgary April 9-11 


Specific locations and registration for the consultation sessions will be available soon. As well, we anticipate the release of a workbook in the very near future that will contain detailed questions about specific aspects of the MGA. For more details on this initiative, visit the official website at mgareview.alberta.ca.

The AAMDC has been busy preparing members for this important review including our own interactive workshops (results) and our upcoming information sessions (details). Members are encouraged to avail themselves of these resources to ensure comprehensive participation in the government’s regional sessions and workbook process.
