Municipal Employees Benefit Association of Calgary (MEBAC)

Municipal Employees Benefit Association of Calgary (MEBAC) manages and administers employee contributions to The City of Calgary employee benefits plan. It also partners and negotiates with The City on changes to benefits.

The common objective is to deliver a consistent, competitive level of benefits to employees--using strength in numbers to get better coverage and keep costs as low as possible.

Membership in MEBAC consists of all but one of The City's unions and associations. The MEBAC board-which includes City representatives--meets regularly to monitor the benefits program and develop strategy for the future.  The Annual General Meeting is held in June each year.  All employees represented by MEBAC member unions and associations are welcome to attend.

To become better aware of how MEBAC is structured, see the list of member unions and associations.
