St. Albert’s Advocacy Priorities
St. Albert is a vibrant, innovative and thriving city that sustains and cherishes its unique identity and small town values. We are cultivating our future through:
What is the Advocacy Plan?
St. Albert City Council reviews and updates their advocacy plan annually to ensure it reflects the most current needs and priorities of the community, and to ensure resources are being directed to the appropriate areas.
Items in the advocacy plan are projects that require assistance outside of the City of St. Albert’s direct control – they involve partnerships, funding and policy development from other governments and non-government stakeholders.
There are various stages that a project moves through between inception and completion. The needs of the project change throughout its lifecycle based on constantly changing environmental factors.
Advocacy is only one part of a successful project. Advocacy is sometimes needed at various points of a project’s lifecycle, not just the beginning. Projects are monitored and advocacy can resume at any point if it becomes necessary to keep the project moving forward.
Council’s advocacy projects are categorized in the following ways:
When assistance or approval for an initiative from other governments or stakeholders is required. This can be required and occur at various points throughout a project as circumstances evolve.
When assistance or approval from decision-makers has been obtained and further work is required by the City to move the project forward towards completion.
When assistance or approval of an initiative from decision-makers has been obtained, but no work is possible or required from the City and the project awaits action from outside stakeholders/officials before it can be considered complete or move to the next stage.
