BILD Alberta is meeting with the Minister of Municipal Affairs, Kaycee Madu.

Carmen Wyton, BILD Alberta CEO, along with representatives from the Board plan to discuss the policy submissions that were delivered last month.
Working Together
BILD Alberta attended the Bill 7 Municipal Government Amendment Act media event. We have been supportive of the legislation which allows for municipalities to provide tax breaks in order to encourage investment.

Our support has been noticed by the Minister who pointed out BILD Alberta's stance on the legislation in social media.
Be Heard - Have a say about Building Codes.
The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) needs volunteers to serve on their technical committees in the next Code development cycle.

Industry participation in codes development has become more important than ever before because the province is moving towards harmonization and planning to auto-adopt future National Building Codes.

Interested? Contact Matthew Armstrong ASAP. Application deadline is July 15, 2019.
