Town and County to Leave the CMRB

Town and County to Leave CMRB

Ministry of Municipal Affairs approves requests


The Town of Strathmore is exiting the Calgary Metro Region Board. Town leadership was notified by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs that its request was approved earlier this week. The move was initiated by the municipality in 2021.

Town Council had called on the Ministry of Municipal Affairs to amend the Calgary Metro Region Board Regulation; legislation passed in 2017 to establish the body. With less than two percent of the region’s population and without direct proximity to the City of Calgary, the real cost of participating in the CMRB exceeded the value of membership.

“We’re grateful to Minister McIver for his leadership on this. Our communities have a strong history of building partnerships with our neighbours – and we’ll continue to grow these partnerships,” said Mayor Pat Fule. “Our commitment to our residents is to regularly evaluate our formal partnerships to ensure we deliver the best value possible.”
“The work we contributed to the CMRB Growth Plan is a head start on regional cooperation for Strathmore, Wheatland County, and Siksika Nation,” said Mayor Fule. “There is so much potential for our communities to collaborate on new industries, tourism, marketing, and more. This is an exciting opportunity for our region.”
