The Provincial-Municipal Fiscal and Service Delivery Review (PMFSDR) resulted in a landmark agreement between the Province and Ontario’s 444 municipalities. The agreement provides communities with the capacity to plan and budget for their future and focus municipal property tax dollars on local priorities, including modern and efficient infrastructure, job creation, and economic development.

As a result of the uploads, municipalities benefited from more than $1.8 billion in reduced costs in 2016 alone.
