Council has adopted a new Tax Concession Policy. The purpose of the policy is to grant a fair and consistent means of granting tax concessions to promote economic growth within the municipal district. 

  • This tax concession does not include education or seniors’ taxes or any local improvement taxes.
  • Developers must have four (4) or more lots (within the same    subdivision plan) to be eligible
  • This policy only applies to titled vacant (undeveloped) lots, without title transfer, signed offers to purchase, sales agreements, rent-to-purchase agreements, or any other sales agreements in place 

Please note the registered landowner/developer is required to apply in writing for the tax incentive prior to June 30th.


Below is a link to the list of certified contractors that are eligible to obtain private sewage treatment system permits in the Province of Alberta. This list is maintained and updated on a regular basis as contractor certification is renewable on an annual basis. For your convenience the list is sorted alphabetically by municipality so that you are able to find a certified contractor in your area.
