Filing an Appeal

In an effort to prepare for, and prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo has closed all offices to the public.  While all our municipal offices are closed, we will still be accepting Community Standards Appeal submissions.

Please submit your completed complaint forms to csac@rmwb.ca.  At this time, we are unable to process filing fee payments including credit card payments.  You will be advised when payment options have been finalized. 

For any other questions, please visit rmwb.ca/csac or direct your enquiry to the Clerk of the Community Standards Appeal Committee at csac@rmwb.ca.
