FROM THE CHAIR
January 27, 2021
As we move into the New Year, I would like to provide you with a brief update on the latest developments arising from the association.
2021 Fee Invoices
Last week, UDI-ER sent out the 2021 fee invoices. Please note that in the letter accompanying the invoice, there was a link to UDI-ER’s 2021-23 Strategic Plan and 2021 Business Plan. To read these documents, please click here.
Once again, your continuing financial support is appreciated and more important than ever if we are to successfully advocate on your behalf to all levels of government - thereby enabling policy and regulatory environments conducive to investment.
Q1 Upcoming Council Items
There are numerous upcoming City Council items that UDI-ER will be closely monitoring due to their potential impact on the development industry. Many of these relate to the implementation of the City Plan and include the Growth Management Framework, the Zoning Bylaw Renewal, and the Energy Transition Strategy and Action Plan. In addition, many items throughout the region, such as Fort Saskatchewan’s adoption of a new Municipal Development Plan.
Along with the Strategic Plan, and 2021 Business Plan, our 6 standing and 7 regional committees have identified respective key focus areas and remain working diligently on achieving successful outcomes. As an organization, we will continue to update Members on all pertinent issues through our e-mails and on our website.
Finally, please keep your eye open for an invitation to our next UDI-ER Webinar. It will occur on Thursday, February 18th, 2021, and feature Tim McMillan, President and CEO - Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.
