The Alberta Electoral Boundaries Commission
(AEBC), appointed in late 2016, has been tasked with reviewing the existing boundaries and names for the 87 electoral constituencies and must report to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta by October 31, 2017. As part of the review process, stakeholders are able to provide comment and submissions either written or in-person and the process by which those comments can be received is now online
Across Alberta, a series of public hearings will be held between January 16, 2017 and January 29, 2017. The schedule for those hearings can be found here
though those wishing to make a presentation must register in advance. Please see the AEBC website
for the registration details.
Details for those wishing to make a written submission can also do so before the February 8th
, 2017 deadline. For more information on how to provide a written submission, click here
The AAMDC is looking to provide both a presentation and a written submission to the AEBC but encourage all AAMDC members to also take use opportunity to ensure that rural Albertans continue to have effective representation in Alberta’s legislature. The AAMDC will continue to share additional information as it is made available.
