SUMA Calling for Federal Commitment to Build Safer, Sustainable Communities

Aug 19, 2021

As Canadians prepare to head to the polls on September 20 to elect Canada’s 44th Parliament, the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) is calling on Canada’s federal parties to commit to helping build safer, more sustainable communities and fostering a better municipal-federal relationship.

“Municipalities are the order of government closest to the people,” said Mayor Rodger Hayward, President of SUMA. “We understand the needs of our residents, and what we need is federal support to build communities that are safe and sustainable. We also need a relationship where we are at the table when discussions that impact our communities, like infrastructure funding and policing, are had.”
