Bill 8, Emergency Management Amendment Act Engagement

The Government of Alberta is proposing changes to Alberta’s emergency management legislative framework. Bill 8, the Emergency Management Amendment Act, was introduced in the legislature on April 3, 2018, with debate held over until the fall sitting of the legislature.
