The AAMDC’s takes pride in representing the rural municipal perspective to provincial and federal decision-makers, industry, and other stakeholders.
As part of our advocacy efforts, the AAMDC regularly develops and updates a series of position statements that summarize the AAMDC’s positions on key policy areas. These position statements are updated to reflect emerging issues and new resolutions and approved by the AAMDC Board of Directors twice each year. The summer 2017 position statements are now available on the AAMDC website
Position statements are divided into the following themes:
- Community Services
- Industry and Resource Development
- Municipal Finances
- Planning and Development
- Transportation and Infrastructure
Position statements on climate change and rural economic development are being finalized and will be available shortly.
The AAMDC encourages all members to review the updated position statements and use them as a resource in local advocacy efforts. If more detail is needed on a certain issue, please search for related resolutions on the AAMDC’s Resolution Database
. Also feel free to contact the policy analyst listed in each position statement category to discuss issues in more detail.
