Alternative Approval Process

Alternative Approval Processes (AAP’s) are commonly used to undertake initiatives like long-term borrowing, boundary extensions, establishing a new service, or other matters requiring electorate approval.

About the Process

Under the Community Charter, local governments such as the Town of Oliver may use an Alternative Approval Process (AAP) to directly engage citizens about a proposed bylaw or other matter requiring elector approval. An AAP can be used for various initiatives to undertake long-term borrowing, a boundary extension, to establish a new service, or other matter requiring approval of the electorate.
