EMRB Business Continuity & COVID-19

As we adjust to our new operating reality, the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board - like many organizations across the Region - has transitioned from in-person meetings to virtual meeting platforms.

In accordance with public health measures, virtual meetings for Board, Committee and Task Force meetings will replace in-person meetings until such time when health officials recommend it safe return to business in-person. 

EMRB Staff will advise members of the Board, stakeholders and the public of rescheduled meetings as details are available. In order to ensure security within virtual meeting platforms, specific meeting invitations containing login details for our videoconferencing platform will be distributed to participating Board members directly. 

Specific meeting agendas, reports and material can be found on our Meetings & Events section of the website.

In accordance with our obligation to ensure public access to EMRB meetings and proceedings, all EMRB Board, Committee and Task Force meetings will also be live streamed on the EMRB YouTube channel. Links to specific YouTube live streams are also posted on emrb.ca/meetings-and-events

Upcoming Virtual Meetings:
  • EMRB Regular Board Meeting - May 14 
  • EMRB Audit & Finance Committee - May 14
  • ITRMP Webinar with Charlie Hales - May 15
  • Regional Broadband Webinar 1 - May 26
  • Regional Broadband Webinar 2 - May 28
The health and safety of our members, staff, stakeholders and our regional community is our highest priority. We will continue to monitor the situation and will communicate with member municipalities on further business continuity measures. 

Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we adjust the way we work.
