Intergovernmental & Corporate Strategy



Intergovernmental & Corporate Strategy's (ICS) mandate is to support Council directions and advance The City of Calgary’s strategic interest. We work collaboratively with City departments and business units to identify issues and opportunities to advocate to other orders of government including regional and civic partners.

Our work focuses on evolving Government Relations conversations into Corporate Strategy actions.

 

 
 
 An important part of the work Intergovernmental & Corporate Strategy does involves The City’s legislative framework, which is currently comprised of three main pillars: The Municipal Government Act, City Charter and Growth Management Board. Through these three pillars of legislation, we work collaboratively with The Corporation to identify emerging and potential opportunities and aid in the development of the corporate strategy needed to fill related gaps. Essentially, we transform government relations into corporate strategy.

    Municipal Government Act

    The Municipal Government Act (MGA) is the law under which all Alberta municipalities are empowered to shape their communities. The MGA defines how The City of Calgary and other municipalities function, develop land, raise funds for things like services, and more.

    Currently, the Government of Alberta is in the process of modernizing the MGA, which was first established in 1967 and it had not been comprehensively review until now. The province and The City of Calgary are working collaboratively on this review and The City’s MGA Review Submission is published and available for viewing.

    As part of the review there have been two legislative amendments and two amendment Bills (Bill 20 – Municipal Government Amendment Act and Bill 21 – Modernized Municipal Government Act) which have led to the province and its two largest municipalities, Calgary and Edmonton, developing City Charters and Growth Management Boards.
