Aerial of Edmonton

Great Cities are built by, for and with the people they represent. As Edmonton continues to grow and diversify, so does the scale and complexity of the services we provide. It is important to pursue innovative ways to serve citizens and ensure that together we are building a great city. This work helps us to be a more attractive, globally competitive, resilient and prosperous city.

In order to advance and grow, Edmonton requires appropriate legislation, programs and policies that will enable us to govern effectively and efficiently, respond to local needs, and enhance the quality of life for our citizens. Edmonton can achieve this in part by building and leveraging relationships with other orders of government, other municipalities, and municipal organizations. 

Current city-building initiatives underway include the review of the Municipal Government Act, the development of a City Charter and enhanced collaboration with other municipalities in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.
