Alberta’s two largest cities provide essential services that serve over half of Alberta’s population with police and fire protection, clean water, public transportation, and park and recreational amenities. However, the cities have only three sources of revenue (property taxes, user fees, and transfers from other orders of government) and since these sources are not responsive to population growth, the ability of the cities to keep providing services and build needed infrastructure is eroding quickly.
