Information bulletins

The purpose of an information bulletin (IB) is to notify industry regarding items such as:

  • proposed changes to legislation
  • regulations or operating procedures with the intent of soliciting feedback
  • new programs or changes to existing programs, projects, services, strategies or organizational structures

The IB's are available through Alberta’s open government portal at the following links:
