Canmore, AB – Today, the Alberta Court of Appeal announced its decision on Canmore (Town of) v Three Sisters Mountain Village Properties Ltd., in which the Court upheld the May 2022 decisions of the Land and Property Rights Tribunal (LPRT), and dismissed the Town of Canmore’s appeal. In May 2022, the LPRT issued decisions that the area structure plans submitted by Three Sisters Mountain Village to the Town for approval are consistent with the terms of its provincial approval by the Natural Resources Conservation Board. The LPRT overruled both of the Town of Canmore Council’s spring 2021 decisions and ordered the Town of Canmore to adopt two Area Structure Plans that provide for development in Three Sisters to proceed.
Three Sisters Mountain Village (TSMV) has been working diligently for many years on the long-planned vision for the Three Sisters Mountain Village community to be realized, and this decision brings clarity and certainty to the future development of Three Sisters.
“We are pleased to see this decision from the Alberta Court of Appeal. In the coming days, we will be reviewing the decision in its entirety and immediately undertaking the next steps in the process that lead to physical development on the property,” said Chris Ollenberger, Director, TSMV Strategy and Development. “We believe that the Court’s decision is not only good news for Three Sisters Mountain Village but for the entirety of Canmore and the Bow Valley. This decision is timely given the discussions on housing supply occurring in the community as Three Sisters is the main source of many types of housing in the valley.”
TSMV has been working in Alberta for the past 30 years, ensuring that their developments are not only environmentally sustainable but also built considering current and future residents and businesses. Since first breaking ground in Canmore, TSMV has worked diligently to find opportunities to protect the environment while maximizing opportunities for all Albertans to explore and enjoy the Bow Valley. In addition to adding to the sorely needed housing supply, Three Sisters continues the vision of Alberta to diversify its economy and provide the opportunity for new jobs and families to add to the fabric of the Bow Valley.
“This decision brings exciting news to Three Sisters Mountain Village and all those eager to see more opportunities to live, work, and play in the Bow Valley,” commented David Taylor, President of TSMV. “We appreciate the court’s due diligence in making this decision and look forward to moving ahead in the coming weeks and months to help enhance the Canmore experience through Three Sisters Mountain Village. We’re excited to continue working to develop world-class, livable communities in the heart of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains.”
