AMA's Role in Policy

The Association of Municipal Administrators is a trusted resource and stakeholder that actively contributes to the improvement of public policy in Nova Scotia. AMANS supports the operations of Nova Scotia municipalities through the development of model by-laws, policies, best-practices and through the provision of objective policy advice in support of evidence based decision-making. 

AMANS provides policy support and expert advice to the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities (UNSM) and maintains an active and professional partnership with the Province of Nova Scotia on a number of on-going projects. Examples of current projects include: the Municipal Government Act Review; the Provincial-Municipal Joint Accountability and Transparency Committee; and the Provincial-Municipal Partnership Agreement.
