Municipalities 101: The Essentials of Municipal Governance is part of the modernized Elected Officials Education Program (EOEP), which is a joint venture of AUMA and AAMDC funded by Municipal Affairs. The course consists of Municipal Governance and Legislation; the Elected Official’s Role; Finance; Planning and Development; and Effective Collaboration.
CAOs are encouraged to attend the course with their councillors. This course will fully satisfy the MGA requirement for municipalities to offer training to all new and returning elected officials within 90 days after taking the oath of office. The course will be offered in 14 locations across the province to ensure it is accessible.
