Municipal Legislation Review

Email this page

Ontario has reviewed three key elements of Ontario’s municipal legislative framework: the Municipal Act, the City of Toronto Act, and the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.

The government is required by legislation to review the Municipal Act and City of Toronto Act every five years. The government is reviewing these Acts at the same time, along with the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.

The deadline for public submissions and input was October 31, 2015. The consultation focused on the themes outlined below and was guided by a Discussion Guide and the Discussion Questions document.
  1. Accountability and Transparency
  2. Municipal Financial Sustainability
  3. Responsive and Flexible Municipal Government

We have assessed the feedback received and developed recommendations for the government on how to improve the Municipal Act, the City of Toronto Act, and the Municipal Conflict of Interest ActThe government’s proposals are included in the Modernizing Ontario’s Municipal Legislation Act.
