The Act to ensure the occupancy and vitality of territories is adopted
The new legislation is aimed at adapting the management framework of government departments and bodies so that they better respond to the specific characteristics of the regions. Elected municipal officers will play a front-line role in ensuring the occupancy and vitality of their territories by mobilizing their communities.
Also in keeping with a spirit of occupancy and vitality of the territories, the roles of the Minister responsible for the administration of the legislation and the Ministers responsible for the regions will be strengthened so as to better foster the link between government action and territorial priorities.
