The Alternative Approval Process (AAP) process allows you to indicate if you are in opposition to a proposal. Certain agreements, bylaws (such as a borrowing bylaw or a park exchange bylaw) or other matters require permission from the electors before they can be adopted by Council. There are two options to achieve that permission: through an AAP or through Assent Voting (formerly known as a referendum).
Councils commonly use an AAP to gauge public opinion - it is a less expensive option than using Assent Voting and can be used whenever the legislation requires the City to obtain permission from the electors.
