Council Meeting Information During COVID-19
The Municipal Government Act (MGA) governs how municipalities operate and is one of the most significant and far-reaching statutes in Alberta. While the MGA provides the framework for municipalities to work within, the COVID-19 outbreak has presented unique operational challenges for local government operations.
To assist municipalities in complying with legislative meeting requirements, the Meeting Procedures (COVID-19 Suppression) Regulation has been enacted. The regulation allows meetings to be held in a manner that supports social distancing recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Municipalities now have flexibility when conducting meetings and public hearings by electronic means, navigating quorum challenges due to councillors in quarantine, as well as methods for providing information to the public.
