TILMA Consultations

TILMA did not take effect for local governments or for occupations until April 1, 2009, and only after extensive consultation. The Governments of Alberta and British Columbia have worked with local governments and professional and occupational associations to help them adopt TILMA. The first step was a series of consultations, with these stakeholders where their concerns about applying the agreement were addressed.

Alberta Consultation Initiative

Consultations were held across the province in May and June 2007 and were attended by more than 200 elected officials, administrators, and staff from the MASH sector (municipalities, academic institutions, school jurisdictions, and health authority jurisdictions).

A number of representative MASH stakeholder organizations that participated in the regional sessions were invited to attend one of two small group sessions held in August 2007 to validate the results and observations gathered through the regional consultation sessions.

British Columbia Consultation Initiative

Consultations with MASH stakeholder organizations were held across the province beginning in May 2007 and were attended by elected officials, administrators, and staff of municipalities and municipal organizations, college and university authorities, the BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA), and hospital administrators. Consultations continued throughout the transitional period which ended on April 1, 2009.
