News Release

Two upcoming Fair Deal Panel town halls


Alberta’s Fair Deal Panel will hold its next two town hall meetings in Fort McMurray and Fort Saskatchewan on Jan. 8 and Jan. 9.

The Fair Deal Panel is consulting Albertans on how best to define and secure a fair deal for the province. The panel members are exploring ideas that give the province a bigger voice within the federation, increase power over areas of provincial jurisdiction and advance vital economic interests.

The Fort McMurray town hall is taking place on Wednesday, Jan. 8 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Quality Inn and Conference Centre. Seating capacity is limited so participants should register to attend.

The town hall in Fort Saskatchewan is on Thursday, Jan. 9 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Lion’s Banquet Hall in the Dow Centennial Centre. Capacity is limited, so those interested in attending should register in advance.

Albertans are encouraged to attend local town hall sessions and share their vision of how Alberta can achieve a fairer deal.

All Albertans will have the opportunity to provide their input online and through other forms of direct feedback as the panel conducts its public consultations until Jan. 30. More information on how to participate is available at www.fairdeal.ca.

In addition to receiving input from Albertans, the Fair Deal Panel will consult with policy experts and undertake research to inform its recommendations. The panel will complete its report to the government by March 31.
