The Government of Alberta has recently released the regulation
that details the city charters that the Cities of Edmonton and Calgary will receive. The city charters are an effort to recognize the unique needs of Alberta’s two largest metropolitan centres.
The City Charter Regulation
covers several broad areas including:
- Administrative Efficiency
- Supporting Community Well Being
- Smarter Community Planning
- Empowering Local Environmental Stewardship
Additional fiscal or financial components are to be discussed and detailed later.
The AAMDC, with assistance from the Government of Alberta, has compiled the key features of the City Charter Regulation here

The AAMDC has supported the city charters process to meet the two cities’ unique needs and has provided ongoing feedback to this process with the expectation that the charters do not provide unfair competitive advantages to the cities over their rural neighbours, or that the charters would compromise the local autonomy of those rural municipalities in the metropolitan regions.
The AAMDC will be drafting a response to the City Charter Regulation
but if AAMDC members have specific feedback, please share it with AAMDC Policy Analyst Matt Dow at email@example.com
