Local Government Week: October 15-21, 2023
What Do Local Governments Do? Municipalities are the level of the government closest to the people. From transportation and economic development to affordable housing and social services, local governments are responsible for the delivery of many services that we all use on a daily basis.
Did you know that Local Government roles and responsibilities include airports, cemeteries, library services, paramedics, property assessment, planning, children’s services, tourism, and social services. And Local governments in Ontario include 444 municipalities, 72 school boards, 34 public health units, and 36 conservation authorities?
