RMA and AUMA have partnered with Alberta Municipal Affairs to develop a guide for engaging the public in response to the new requirements under the Municipal Government Act (MGA).
With the support of Alberta Municipal Affairs, RMA and AUMA are collaborating to develop resources to support municipalities in implementing requirements under the revised MGA. Within the new legislation and as of July 2018, every Alberta municipality is required to have a publicly available Public Participation Policy. The policy must be reviewed and updated every four years or as required.
The new Public Engagement Guide offers a step-by-step look at how to fulfill the requirements of your Public Engagement Policy and make public engagement work for you. It is supplemented by a Public Engagement Workbook that provides easy-to-use templates to help develop an approach, plan, and implement public engagement. There are references throughout the workbook, indicating where you will find templates that correspond with the content in this guide.
