In recognition of the importance of an educated population to the future well-being of rural communities, the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties established the AAMDC Scholarship Program in 1995. 

The AAMDC Scholarship Program is designed to encourage young rural Albertans to pursue further education, and thereby enhance the ability of these young people to make meaningful contributions to their communities in subsequent years. Through the Scholarship Program, the AAMDC provides funding assistance to five rural students each year (one student in each of the five AAMDC geographic districts).

The Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties has released an information sheet regarding Rural Industrial and Linear Property Taxes.  In recent months, there has been talk of proposed legislated changes to the distribution of these taxes to urban municipalities.  AAMDC and our Council wish to ensure that rural residents are aware of the impact such legislation would have on every rural municipality in our province. The cost to provide services and maintain roads for industrial and linear property activity is very high and rural municipalities rely on these taxes to provide these services.  Any redistribution of the tax revenue will result in significant changes to our rural municipality.  To read the full information sheet click here and feel free to contact your local MLA to let your voice be heard.
