Municipal Annexation

What is annexation

Annexation is a municipal boundary change to allow for future growth. In Alberta, annexations are regulated by the Municipal Government Board (MGB). The annexation process involves negotiations between local governments, public engagement with property owners, a formal review by the Municipal Government Board, and ultimately a decision by the Lieutenant Governor in Council.

Annexation does not change ownership rights, nor does it necessarily initiate immediate development.


Need for annexation

As a growing and vibrant community, Lloydminster’s residential land supply is depleting, and commercial and industrial stakeholders will face increasing demands to ensure land is available to support future development. Industrial and commercial development support a viable tax base to fund City infrastructure, facilities and services to support residential growth.


Where is the proposed annexation area?

The proposed annexation area includes 23.5 quarter sections of land within the Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) area. These lands have not yet been approved by the municipal councils or the provincial government.

View the proposed annexation area map, or contribute your feedback on a specific location on the interactive map below.


What does this mean for residents, businesses and owners?

Residents, businesses and property owners within the annexation area should consider how jurisdictional change in the following municipal services may impact them:

  • water / wastewater
  • garbage disposal
  • emergency services
  • animal control
  • permits
  • land use
  • addresses and land locations
  • etc.

Get involved

The County of Vermilion River and the City of Lloydminster are committed to an open and communicative annexation process and will provide information and opportunity for public input.

In efforts to connect you to the subject-matter experts, the City and County have scheduled two drop-in open houses:

  • Tuesday, September 10, 2019
    • Blackfoot Community Hall (50 Ave Blackfoot, AB)
    • 5-8 pm
