NEW MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT ACT TO HAVE PROVINCIAL OMBUDSMAN ROLE

June, 2016

The Government of Alberta is reviewing and replacing the Municipal Government Act. The review has recognized there is a significant gap in the current system in terms of municipal accountability to citizens and electors. Grassroots citizens like Save the Rosebud, who have struggled to find an effective voice in a flawed municipal process will eventually be heard by the Provincial Ombudsman.

Read about How Municipalities are Empowered to Govern now and the proposed new legislation.

“What we heard: Albertans suggested the current system does not always hold councils accountable between elections. They also indicated it can be confusing to petition the Minister to act on public concerns. Pursuing the matter through court can be too expensive for many citizens or businesses.”

“The re-structured petitioning provisions for municipal audits and inspections will be proclaimed by October 1, 2017. The Alberta Ombudsman is projected to accept municipal complaints starting April 1, 2018.”
