The report from CFIB (Canadian Federation of Independent Business) analyzes the operating spending of 181 municipalities across Alberta from 2007 to 2017. Alberta's largest municipalities (i.e. with populations of 1,000 residents or more) are ranked. Additionally, all of Alberta's 181 municipal governments are organized according to municipal spending and revenue.
Each municipality was given an overall provincial ranking based on its spending, where #1 is the best performing municipality, and #181 is the worst. The rankings are based on growth in real operating spending per capita from 2007 to 2017. The complete provincial rankings are included in Appendix C. Legal is ranked #10 out of 181.

With property tax bills being mailed to taxpayers, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation analyzed which Alberta municipal governments are spending the most and least per person, based on data published by the Alberta government. Taxpayers can use this report to see how much their municipal governments are spending per resident, which is proxy for the overall tax burden to fund the municipal government, and compare their municipal governments with similar cities and towns in Alberta.
The CTF’s report, based on data published by the Alberta government, highlights the annual per person spending for municipal governments across the province. In this report, #1 is the worst performing municipality. In the Small Towns category, Legal is ranked #172 out of 195.
