Intergovernmental Relations

City staff and Council sometimes advocate to provincial and federal levels of government. We may ask for changes to policies or let them know about a need in the community for new or expanded services. This could include family doctors, mental health and addictions services, housing and more. We also meet with other Ontario municipalities to work together on issues we have in common. 

Participation in municipal associations 

The Mayor and some City staff belong to groups with other municipal government leaders. They meet to share their experiences and work toward common goals. 

Association of Municipalities of Ontario 

The Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) helps make local governments stronger and more effective. AMO brings Ontario municipalities together to reach shared goals and face common challenges. 

Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario

The Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO) brings together leaders in local government. It provides education, leadership and training for Ontario municipal professionals. 

Federation of Canadian Municipalities 

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) speaks for all local governments in Canada. FCM’s programs help build stronger communities of all sizes. 

Ontario’s Big City Mayors 

Ontario’s Big City Mayors (OBCM) represent cities with populations of 100,000 or more. OBCM provides a voice for mayors in decisions that impact larger Ontario cities.
