The municipal elections in Alberta will take place on October 16, 2017, and Nomination Day is September 18, 2017. For summer villages, the nomination period can occur in June and/or July with Election Day to be held four weeks after the nomination period closes.
Alberta Municipal Affairs has launched a short engagement process on potential amendments to the Local Authorities Election Act aimed to bring rules for local elections closer in line with those for provincial elections. Municipalities are encouraged to review the positions AUMA members adopted at the 2016 AUMA Convention and provide their input to the province by July 31.
