  • The RVTPA is an advocacy group for balanced and broad representative governance in Rocky View County.
  • The RVTPA is a fund raising group to advance the objects of the RVTPA.
  • Good governance encompasses an effective, balanced approach taking all stakeholders into consideration.

More Specifically:

  1. To advocate for accountable and transparent County government.
  2. To encourage Council to work in a collaborative and co-operative manner that reflects and respects all voices, positions and opinions within the County and in the Council Chambers.
  3. To support Council candidates who reflect the objectives of the RVTPA and focus their attention, and legislative efforts, in an open manner on the well-being of the entire County community, be they commercial, farm, acreage or residential.
  4. To ensure that all Councillors are treated fairly, equitably, are granted a voice without censure and that Council, and Council leadership, do not abuse their authority by criticism through inquiry.
  5. To foster a climate of no taxation without effective representation, particularly at Council, and to fund, if necessary, immediate, timely and comprehensive due process in the face of challenges to advancement of ideas and proposals, and attempts to stifle debate and discussion.
