Review the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA)

As you may be aware, it is the intent of the Government of Alberta to review the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) following each municipal general election, with the most recent elections held in October 2017.

The Honourable Shaye Anderson, Minister of Municipal Affairs, is pleased to announce the beginning of consultations with Albertans and key stakeholders regarding the LAEA. Whether you have been instrumental in planning a local election, contributed to a candidate, voted in local elections, advertised on behalf of a candidate, or ran for your local municipality, the LAEA has affected you.

All Albertans are being asked for their feedback on a variety of topics regarding local elections, and the provincial government want to hear from you as they consider making changes to this important piece of legislation.
