The proposed changes to the The Municipal Government Act (MGA) were developed through extensive public consultation, careful analysis of what we heard from Albertans, and collaborative work with key municipal partners. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the province-wide conversation about the future of municipalities in Alberta.
