Lloydminster Charter
The Lloydminster Charter is provincial legislation, approved by both the Province of Alberta and the Province of Saskatchewan.  Any amendments to the Charter must be approved by the two provinces through complimentary orders in council. 

The Charter provides the framework for administration and governance for the City of Lloydminster.  Through provincial legislation, it gives Lloydminster City Council the same authority that is provided to municipal governments in other Alberta and Saskatchewan cities.  It is a document that recognizes the unique challenges our civic government faces due to our location on the provincial border.  Where possible, it provides authority to apply legislation from one province to the entire City, thus enabling a "seamless" city where possible.

The Charter is updated periodically when other provincial legislation that governs municipal councils is updated. The two provincial governments enacted an updated Lloydminster Charter effective January 1, 2013

The City of Lloydminster hosted a Public Information Session regarding the proposed updated charter on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 with representatives from both Alberta and Saskatchewan in attendance.  Each government representative gave a short presentation, followed by a question and answer session.  These presentations are  available for your review under the quick links portion of this page.
