GOOD TO KNOW
  • Do you have a municipal employee who is passionate about safety codes? Tell them about the Safety Codes Council email list. The purpose is to help improve communication between the Safety Codes Council and municipal staff who work with safety codes. Safety Codes Sub-Councils will use the email list to share information and ask for feedback on topics related to safety codes permits, inspections, or other technical issues.  E-mail Allison Karch, Public Relations Coordinator, Safety Codes Council to sign-up.


  • For over 50 years, the Government of Alberta, participating municipalities, and Métis Settlements have jointly funded preventative social services for Albertans through the Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) Program. This valuable FCSS toolkit is now available as a useful resource.
