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.
The proposed changes would update rules and regulations to help communities improve their response to disasters. It would also provide the ability to create a new Local Authority Emergency Management Regulation that would give clear direction on emergency management practices for municipalities to follow.
During the summer, the Alberta Emergency Management Agency will engage with stakeholders on the proposed changes.
