The Municipality’s approach to our draft bylaw was based on best practice research, collaboration with other Alberta municipalities, meetings with stakeholders and a robust and extensive public engagement process. We want to ensure that our bylaw is community-driven, responsive to the needs of all residents and reflects health considerations.
