Keep industry out of Edmonton’s river valley

This spring, and then again this fall, city council will be asked to decide on whether or not to rezone two sections of river valley land from “parkland” to “industrial,” both changes at the request of Epcor. The fall decision would involve the loss of approximately seven acres to allow Epcor to expand the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant (mostly for parking), even though land is available for expansion outside the city limits.

The spring decision, scheduled for June 6, would involve the loss of 99 acres to allow Epcor to construct a solar power plant next to the E.L. Smith Water Treatment Plant in southwest Edmonton. These proposals reflect the “death by a thousand cuts” urbanist Jane Jacobs described, and they should be rejected.

New energy efficiency rebates unlock more savings in your home

January 22, 2019

The City of Edmonton has launched a top-up program that enables homeowners to receive an extra 20 per cent money back on home energy evaluations and retrofits through the new Home Energy Plan.

The Home Energy Plan program, offered by the City of Edmonton and Energy Efficiency Alberta, provides homeowners access to expert advice on energy efficiency and rebates on home retrofits.

“More than 1,250 Edmontonians have participated in the Change Homes for Climate programs so far,” said Robyn Webb, Senior Environmental Project Manager in the Energy Transition Unit. “With this new rebate program we hope even more Edmontonians will take advantage of these incentives to make their homes more energy efficient.”

Homeowners can receive $400 towards the cost of a Home Energy Evaluation. After the evaluation, homeowners are eligible to apply for even greater rebates on a wide range of home upgrades, including insulation, windows, furnaces and more.

Kick start your new year with a more energy efficiency home!

Edmonton Announcements

Share your feedback on City’s updated accessibility policy for people with disabilities

February 21, 2019


One in seven Canadians have a disability and that number is expected to grow with an aging population. People with disabilities may encounter a range of barriers in their lives that can limit social, political and economic participation and inclusion in the community. The City of Edmonton is working to reduce and remove these barriers to ensure all people are able to participate and contribute, regardless of their abilities.


The City is updating corporate policy on accessibility for people with disabilities and seeks public feedback on a draft document.
