    The federal government has now publicly confirmed that it will release 25 per cent of cannabis excise tax revenues to support municipal legalization costs. This gets us closer to FCM's goal of securing one third of those revenues as a permanent financial tool for local governments.

    Municipalities are on the front lines of legalizing non-medical cannabis, and our priority is to keep Canadians safe and well-served. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities has prepared information for municipalities about how legalization could affect communities and what municipalities can do to get ready.

    The AAMDC, in partnership with the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) and Alberta Municipal Affairs, is pleased to announce the release of two separate tools for municipalities to assist in the implementation of the recent changes to the Municipal Government Act (MGA). The two tools are:

    The revised MGA requires all municipalities to develop a council code of conduct; however, the province has left the details of each municipality’s code of conduct to be determined locally. The MGA also requires that municipalities to develop a public participation policy and a public notification bylaw if they choose to use notification methods beyond the methods that are currently used. These tools provide both background and templates for these important changes.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Policy Analyst, Matt Dow at matt.dow@aamdc.com.
