Local Government Awareness Week

UBCM, in partnership with CivicInfo BC and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, is pleased to support the 2020 Local Government Awareness Week, May 17-23. This annual initiative is aimed at building public awareness of local government roles and encouraging participation in local government processes. This year will include an Asset Management Awareness Day on Wednesday, May 19.

The wording the Proclamation has been updated for 2021 to further reinforce the important role that local governments play in the lives of the public during the ongoing pandemic.
New in 2021, an Asset Management Awareness Day has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 19. This day will help to highlight the importance of sound asset management practices. Local governments strive to deliver services sustainably, and work to ensure that current community service needs, and how those services are delivered, do not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs through sound asset management practices.

For information and resources please visit the Local Government Awareness Week page.

If you have activity ideas that you would like to share with your peers, please send them to Jamee Justason, Resolutions and Policy Analyst, for inclusion on the Local Government Awareness Week website.
