Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP)

An Intermunicipal Devlopment Plan (IDP) is a statutory policy document that is designed to foster cooperation and ensure that planning and development across municipal borders takes place in an integrated manner without unnecessary costs or negative impacts on either municipality.

Funded by the Province of Alberta, the following six municipalities are working collaboratively to achieve to IDPs for all their shared boundaries:

County of St. Paul
Lac La Biche County
County of Vermilion River
Smoky Lake County
County of Two Hills
Municipal District of Bonnyville

This collaborative project is about achieving strategic and efficient delivery of intermunicipal services and development.  It will fulfill recent updates to the Municipal Government Act that requires all municipalities to have IDPs with adjacent municipalities.
