The world is evolving - society has become increasingly digital, mobile, and connected. More than ever, communities need to ensure they manage critical infrastructure effectively, deliver services efficiently, collaborate freely, and analyze data for local benefit.
Analysis and advocacy related to the Municipal Government Act (MGA) is a key priority for the AUMA, as the MGA governs the way that municipalities plan, manage, and pay for services for their residents. AUMA is a leading voice in advocating for changes to the Act that benefit and empower municipalities. AUMA also provides input to the province on the development of associated regulations and develops resources to assist members with change management. This page provides a single window for MGA-related information and resources developed by the AUMA.
