Casual legal service
Casual legal service is included in membership fees for all AUMA regular and associate members, and is intended to be risk mitigation tool available to any elected or appointed officials.
Casual legal advice is intended to provide general guidance to members to assist them in avoiding potential legal problems. This general guidance is not legal advice in the context of a solicitor-client relationship, as no retainer is formed between the legal service provider and member.
Information on the type of guidance constituting casual legal advice must take place within the 5-15 minute telephone conversation. This advice does not include review of written documentation of any significant length, legal research or preparation of written legal opinions.
The opinion of legal counsel for casual legal advice will only be directed at the Municipality not an individual, elected official or employee. Where elected officials have differing opinions, especially relating to pecuniary interest, it is in the best interest of that individual to seek their own independent legal counsel.
The service is an important risk management tool for members in an increasingly litigious environment. Municipalities are encouraged to be proactive in their risk management initiatives, and look for ways to obtain information at an early stage to avoid more costly legal issues and litigation down the line. It is a simple, cost-efficient and easily accessible part of risk management. Here is a sampling of issues that can be discussed:
- Planning and development
- Conflict of interest/pecuniary interest
- Labour and employment
- Taxation and assessment
- Enforcement orders
To use the casual legal service, AUMA members can call toll-free 1-800-661-7673 or email.
Pet health insurance
We know pets are an important part of the family, and that the cost of providing veterinary care for pets can often be expensive. That’s why we’ve partnered with a well-established Canadian organization called Petsecure, the plan offers several options for those interested in insurance for dogs and cats. The plan offers comprehensive coverage for the most common health care needs of Canadian pets.
Regardless of the level of pet insurance coverage you choose, you'll be reimbursed for up to 80 per cent of the cost of care and veterinary services. This includes x-rays, hospitalization, surgery and even prescriptions required for any illness or accident.
