When a municipality wants to change their boundaries, they require a complimentary resolution from the other municipality indicating support for the boundary change.
In the absence of a complementary resolution, the municipalities shall seek mediation to resolve outstanding issues.
For the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District (NSAD):
The MBC has the discretion to decide whether or not a NSAD shall work with a mediator. If a mediator isn’t required, the NSAD may have their application reviewed by the MBC without using the mediation process.
