The Alberta Expropriation Association is a non-profit professional association whose objective is to promote public awareness of the principles relating to the expropriation of property rights and surface rights.  In addition, the Association promotes fellowship and exchange of philosophies amongst colleagues practicing in the profession.

Founded in 1988, the Association hosts an annual conference drawing important academics, professionals and experts from across Canada and internationally to discuss developments and the conduct of expropriation in Alberta.  Our annual Spring Dinners in Edmonton and Calgary also support collegial relationships amongst the expropriating authorities and the legal, appraisal and other experts.  This website is designed to inform and educate those who are interested in expropriation.

The Jim Prentice, QC Memorial Endowment Fund

The Alberta Expropriation Association is pleased to announce the activation by the University of Calgary of an on-line donation site to contribute to “The Jim Prentice, QC Memorial Endowment Fund”. By clicking on the “Donate now” button in the link below you will be connected to the U of C site.

The objective of AEA is to create an endowment fund of at least $25,000 from our membership to sustain an annual scholarship of $1,000 to a law student at the UCalgary.

The committee that was struck at last year’s Annual Meeting will make recommendations for the criteria to be used by the UCalgary to determine the annual recipient of the scholarship. The recommendations will be discussed at the October 2017 AEA Conference.

Please take time now to make your contribution to this Memorial Endowment Fund created in Jim’s honor.
