Consultation timelines pause for the holidays

In light of the holiday season, the Government of Alberta acknowledges that there will be some First Nation, Metis Settlement and Credibly Asserted Métis Communities’ office closures and, therefore, will pause consultation activities from December 21, 2023 to January 3, 2024, inclusive.

This time period will not be used or included when calculating timelines or deadlines for consultation. This includes the time a First Nation, Metis Settlement or Credibly Asserted Métis Community has to:

  • respond to notification of a project, or
  • review and respond to project follow-ups, or
  • review a Record of Consultation Log
