Siksika Nation Chief and Council meet with the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board (CMRB)
On April 29, 2022, members of Siksika Chief and Council gathered with the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board (CMRB) to learn and better understand one another.
The meeting was held at Mount Royal University, and the purpose was to engage in preliminary discussions with respect to potentially establishing a Memorandum of Understanding between the parties. Much of the conversation focused on an understanding of Siksika’s history, current and future opportunities, and Siksika’s political environment. The parties are interested in creating a relationship that will mutually benefit residents within the region, including Siksika as a neighbor. All parties are committed to work together to create a strategic plan to better clarify the goals and opportunities that would make up this MOU.
Inclusivity, growth, economic wellbeing, protection of the natural environment, water stewardship and shared services are key elements of the Boards overall vision. The Calgary Metropolitan Region Board consists of elected officials from the Region’s 8-member municipalities: City of Airdrie, City of Calgary, City of Chestermere, Town of Cochrane, Foothills County, Town of High River, Town of Okotoks, and Rocky View County. https://www.calgarymetroregion.ca
