How Are We Doing it?
Through the following partnerships and initiatives, Leduc and its partners are leading the way to regional change for long-term sustainability.
Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board (EMRB)
The City of Leduc is a member of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board (EMRB), a provincially mandated growth management board for the 13 municipalities of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region, who are committed to working together to ensure long-term economic prosperity and quality of life for all citizens in the region.
Their mandate includes:
- Regional growth management and land-use planning
- Coordination of regional infrastructure investment and service delivery
- Promoting the economic well-being and competitiveness of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region
EMRB membership includes: the mayors of Beaumont, Devon, Edmonton, Fort Saskatchewan, Leduc, Leduc County, Morinville, Parkland County, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, St. Albert, Strathcona County, Sturgeon County and a Government of Alberta representative.
Leduc is one of 15 municipalities of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region that came together in 2017 to form Edmonton Global, the first regional economic development corporation of its kind in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.
Their mission is to collaboratively strengthen the Edmonton Metropolitan Region’s global competitiveness, growth and innovation. They will work together to ensure that the Edmonton Metropolitan Region is the location of choice for global investment, collaboratively built on regional assets.
The shareholder municipalities are: Beaumont, Bon Accord, Devon, Edmonton, Fort Saskatchewan, Gibbons, Leduc, Leduc County, Morinville, Parkland County, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, St. Albert, Strathcona County and Sturgeon County.
Edmonton Airport Accord
To fulfill the economic development potential of Edmonton International Airport (EIA), and the surrounding lands, four partners (Edmonton, Leduc, Leduc County and EIA) came together in 2017 to form the Edmonton Airport Accord partnership.
The work and leadership of this partnership will bring greater economic prosperity to the Edmonton Metropolitan Region, which benefits all of Alberta. It will also create efficiencies and showcase the region as a successful example of municipal collaboration. Their key deliverables will be to provide regional frameworks for land use, servicing and transportation, economic development and shared investment for shared benefit.
One shared-success of this partnership thus far is the implementation of enhanced transit connections to and around the Edmonton International Airport, as well as daily connections between City of Leduc and Leduc County to Edmonton.
Leduc Regional Leadership Forum
In 2018, the leaders in the Leduc Region identified that they needed a forum to build and maintain effective and mutually beneficial working relationships with representatives from other municipalities. They wanted to be able to regularly come together to learn from one another, share success stories, understand challenges, help and support one another and see if there are opportunities for some or all to work together to best serve the region and its citizens.
The partner municipalities include: Beaumont, Calmar, Devon, Leduc, Leduc County, Thorsby and Warburg.
Airport Vicinity Protection Area
Airport Vicinity Protection Area (AVPA) regulations are governed by provincial legislation apart of the Municipal Government Act (MGA). In 1981, AVPA regulations were applied to the Edmonton International Airport and impact the way our community grows and develops.
Regional Transit Services Commission
Eight municipalities in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region are in the process of creating a Regional Transit Service Commission to deliver efficient and affordable transit options for riders throughout the region.
