As a solutions-based Association, the AUMA develops various toolkits to assist members in addressing the many challenges they face. Existing toolkits are continually updated and new toolkits are constantly being developed to address the dynamic environment and changing times in which we live.
These toolkits enable a common approach that can be used by all members when addressing challenges.

AUMA’s Energy Policy Framework
In response to the need for a common vision and principles to align municipal energy policies across issues and through time, AUMA has developed a Municipal Energy Policy Framework. This framework will allow AUMA to work with our members to develop energy policies over a period of several years, resulting in policy papers that will go to AUMA’s annual Conventions for final approval.

Welcoming & Inclusive Communities
This was designed to assist Municipalities in Alberta wishing to take action to reduce racism and discrimination and build welcoming and inclusive communities. It was developed to serve as a tool for municipalities pursuing a social inclusion and/or building welcoming communities agenda and to support municipalities that are joining the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination initiative.

Municipal Sustainability Planning Microsite
Municipal sustainability planning is an opportunity for municipalities to look long-term at the communities they want and take proactive steps to move there. It is an opportunity to engage citizens in a dialogue about what they value about their communities and what they want them to look like in the future. Learn more
Integrated Community Sustainability Plan Template
AUMA is pleased to present for your consideration an ICSP template that can, in our view, be utilized to fulfill the ICSP requirement of the Canada-Alberta federal gas tax transfer agreement. The template has been developed due to the lack of a template being forthcoming from either the Government of Alberta or the Government of Canada. Learn more
