Annexation

Annexation is a provincially legislated process of transferring land from one municipality to another. Annexation can be used to expand boundaries (accommodating future growth), relocate fragmented land parcels (resulting from natural/highway boundaries), solve a development problem or provide services that are mutually agreed upon.

Annexation is legislated by the Province through the Municipal Government Act (MGA) and can take, on average, 2-5 years to complete.
