On March 25, 2020, Ministerial Order 022/20 (“MO 022/20”) was issued by the Minister of Municipal Affairs pursuant to the Minister’s power to alter dates and time periods under the Municipal Government Act (“MGA”).  MO 022/20 extended a number of timelines in the MGA. On April 17, 2020, the Minister issued two new Ministerial Orders: Ministerial Order 014/20 (“MO 014/20”) and Ministerial Order 036/20 (“MO 036/20”).  Importantly, MO 036/20 rescinded MO 022/20 and therefore the extensions under MO 022/20 no longer apply.
