Spring 2016 - Bill 7: Electoral Boundaries Commission Amendment Act
This legislation allows for the appointment of an Electoral Boundaries Commission to review Alberta's electoral boundaries.
Existing legislation would not allow for that to happen until July 31, 2017. Since the last provincial election was called one year early, this would not give the commission enough time to effectively review boundaries and recommend changes.
Bill 7 passed third reading on May 12, 2017 and came into force on May 27, 2016.
