RECA News: Relicensing Process Suspended
On August 7, 2019, the Minister of Service Alberta issued a Ministerial Order to RECA for Council not to give effect to new bylaws, rules, policy, directives, directions or interpretations without first obtaining the written approval of the Minister of Service Alberta. Further, the Minister ordered RECA to suspend implementation of any bylaw, rule, policy, direction or interpretation already approved by Council but not yet in effect; such suspension may only be lifted upon written approval of the Minister.
Effective immediately, the Council has suspended the relicensing process until the end of August to get clarification from the Minister of Service Alberta’s office if the increase in fees related to the licensing renewal is contrary to the recent Minister’s Order dated Aug. 7, 2019.
RECA will work diligently and cooperatively with the Minister to ensure compliance with the Minister’s Order and is committed to providing updates to industry members as they become available.
