The AUMA Board of Directors created the Economic Resiliency and Recovery Task Force last year to engage AUMA members and economic development experts in addressing the challenges caused by the low price of oil and the COVID-19 pandemic. The task force was asked to work on these issues through the lens of three deliverables:
- Recommendations as to the role municipalities can play in building a more resilient Alberta economy
- Develop a platform to share promising practices to support economic resiliency with a focus on small communities in particular; and
- Develop recommendations on innovative solutions to support local businesses
On March 25, 2021, the AUMA Board of Directors approved the final report and thanked the task force for their work. Click here to read the final report and please attend the Municipal Leaders’ Caucus session on April 14 at 4:00 where we will be discussing the report.
