Alberta Landowners Council is a grassroots organization that started as a group of concerned Albertans. The original organization, Landowners Against Bills Society of Alberta was formed to help Albertans gather the information that they needed in order to understand the recent landowner legislation. After one year, and 53 Information meetings across the province, we have formed "Alberta Landowners Council", to help keep Albertans informed, and to better promote change for the better in Alberta and respect for landowner rights.
As a non profit organization, we are concerned about the PC government's passing of four pieces of legislation that would have devastating consequences for landowners in Alberta. The bills, 19, 24, 36 (bill 10) and 50 would take away landowner rights.
IMPORANT UPDATE - Bill 2 -new land Bill as of November, 2012
As of November, 2012, another Land Bill, Bill 2, has been passed in the Legislature. For a comprehensive understanding of Bill 2, the Responsible Energy Development Act, we have compiled all documents, video, newspaper articles, and blogs under one heading on this website. To view, simply go to the Bill 2 tab on this website, or this link to find out why Bill 2 strips landowners of important rights regarding energy projects on your deeded and leased lands. The experts, (read docs and blogs at this link Bill 2 ) agree that the Alberta Government is using Bill 2 to extinguish the protection of landowner rights that were previously protected by Alberta law.
