Mayors call for better relationship with the Province of Alberta

2019 Alberta Mid-Sized Cities Mayors’ and CAOs’ Caucus

Mayor Grant Creasey and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Matthew Goudy recently attended the Alberta Mid-Sized Cities Mayors’ and CAOs’ Caucus. They to support the needs of all Albertans.

Mayors and CAOs of 22 cities with populations above 15,000 – representing around one million Albertans – gathered in Cochrane January 29-31, 2019, for their bi-annual caucus meeting.

“The conference was an informative and well executed event,” said Mayor Grant Creasey. “I was pleased that all four provincial party leaders recognized the importance of our organization and promised to work collaboratively in the future.”

“The significance of the Caucus cannot be understated, as it allows members work together to address pressing issues like municipal funding and call for equal consideration for all Alberta municipalities by the federal and provincial governments,” said CAO Matthew Goudy.

Following individual presentations and through subsequent question and answer sessions, caucus members advocated for the opportunity to work collaboratively with the leaders of Alberta’s political parties to build a renewed relationship that empowers mid-sized communities to make decisions about urban and local policy issues.

The Alberta Mid-Sized Cities Mayors’ and CAOs’ Caucus, which formed more than 10 years ago, is calling on the leaders of Alberta’s political parties to bridge the boundaries between all levels of government to attract investment and trade, to diversify our economy, and to commit to legislated, predictable and stable funding for all Alberta communities.
