Cannabis (Marijuana) Legalization

In spring 2017, the federal government tabled legislation to officially legalize cannabis by July 2018. This is a full year earlier than originally planned, and very ambitious, given the need to develop federal and provincial regulations, as well as associated municipal bylaws. While it’s possible that the federal government may choose to extend this deadline, AUMA is proceeding as though implementation will take place next summer.

Election Supports Hub

The municipal elections in Alberta will take place on October 16, 2017, and Nomination Day is September 18, 2017.  For summer villages, the nomination period can occur in June and/or July with Election Day to be held four weeks after the nomination period closes.

Resources have been developed to help to support candidates in their campaigning efforts.
