Municipal Excellence Network

Submissions for the 2015 Minister’s Awards for Municipal Excellence are now being accepted.

All submissions will be reviewed by a committee made up of representatives from municipal organizations.

2015 sees the introduction of a new category – Large municipalities (municipalities with a population of 500,000 or greater). This category was added based on the recommendation from the review committee who noted that it was important to recognize the unique status of the large cities of Edmonton and Calgary and to have a separate category for them.

Submissions are accepted from April 1, 2015 to May 29, 2015. Complete the practice collection form and the award submission form and email them, with any attachments, to:

Information on all the forms can be found here

We look forward to hearing from many municipalities sharing the excellent and creative work that is being done by municipalities to provide services and programs to your residents in an efficient and effective manner.
