Abstract

This article discusses the impact of Alberta's Municipal Government Act (1994) on municipalities. Specifically, the article describes how the Act grants municipalities natural person powers, whereas the previous Municipal Government Act defined all municipal powers within the enabling legislation. The article further discusses how natural person powers will affect a municipality's business Junction and some problems municipalities may face in light of judicial interpretation of these powers.
