Resolutions & Policy

The main forum for UBCM policy-making is the annual resolutions cycle. It provides an opportunity for local governments of all sizes and from all areas of the province to express concerns, share their experiences and take a united position.

UBCM member local governments submit resolutions on province-wide issues for consideration by the full membership at Convention. Resolutions endorsed by the membership are conveyed to other orders of government or organizations involved in local affairs, as appropriate.

Issues too complex to be dealt with in a single resolution may be addressed through presentation of a policy paper for consideration by the membership at Convention.

UBCM policy staff then build on the policy directions endorsed by membership through the resolutions process. Policy implementation activities have expanded from annual presentations to Cabinet to UBCM involvement in intergovernmental committees, regular meetings with Ministers and contact on a daily basis with other orders of government.
