Together, we make up the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board, accountable to coordinate long range growth planning and metro servicing for the region.  

We bolster and balance the character and strengths of each municipality while forging a regional identity and functioning as a cohesive team.

With this context, the EMRB is our platform to look beyond today and beyond our municipal boundaries to ensure growth that serves us all and harmonized management that protects the region’s environment and resources, minimizes our footprint, strengthens communities, increases transportation choice and supports economic development for decades and generations to come.

We are accountable to the citizens of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region and report to the Government of Alberta, where we coordinate with multiple departments to effectively integrate initiatives.

Collaborating for a common goal, our collection of communities forms a complete and sustainably growing region, with something to suit every ambition.

Key tools that ensure we work effectively as a region and remain focused on appropriate priorities to promote global competitiveness and sustainability are: See our predecessor, the Capital Region Board's 10 years of successes in HOR1Z0NS, the 2016/17 Annual Report

Growing Together

The municipalities of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region are diverse, thriving communities from villages and agricultural lands to big cities, and from farming and commerce to industrial areas. Together, we offer the best mix of economic opportunity and lifestyle amenities that attract jobs and the best and brightest people.

But what will the future bring? In 30 years the regional population is expected to double, and the number of jobs rise from 725,000 now to more than1.2 million. With the influx of another million people, where should we expand housing, transportation and infrastructure? How will we capitalize on the best new opportunities to keep the whole region competitive on the global stage?
