Abstract: The potential for municipalities and regional health authorities to affect the course of resource development in Alberta was recently brought to light in the case of Compton Petroleum Corporation’s application to drill six sour gas wells just outside Calgary. The case raised issues about the jurisdiction and role of municipalities and regional health authorities in oil and gas development. This article examines that jurisdiction and the role these entities can play in oil and gas development in Alberta. The article finds that, although their jurisdiction may be limited, there are significant avenues available for municipalities and regional health authorities to ensure that their local and regional concerns are addressed.
