Guide for Municipal Leaders on Canada’s and Alberta’s Economic Response to COVID-19

April 2, 2020

The federal and provincial governments continue to announce comprehensive plans involving various financial supports to help stabilize the economy due to the impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

AUMA has developed a guide for municipalities to outline the variety of programs available and actions taken by the Government of Canada and Government of Alberta to stabilize the economy as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. The information in the guide will help municipalities:

  • determine which programs may be applicable to municipal operations; and
  • communicate with their residents and employers about available programs intended to help alleviate financial pressures on households and businesses.

Read the Guide for Municipal Leaders on Canada’s and Alberta’s Economic Response to COVID-19 (updated as of April 8).
