  • Managing the Cost of Risk - AMO’s 2011 Municipal Insurance Survey Results
    Managing the Cost of Risk - AMO’s 2011 Municipal Insurance Survey Results The Association of Municipalities of Ontario has completed the first ever comprehensive survey of municipal insurance costs across the province. The survey reveals that since 2007, liability premiums have increased by 22.2% and are among the fastest growing municipal costs. Total 2011 Ontario municipal insurance costs are $155.2 million. Liability premiums make up the majority of these expenses at $85.5 million. Property taxpayers are paying this price. Continued advocacy by municipalities is needed to help change this legal environment and explore alternatives such as proportionate liability.

The past, present and future of MFOA

Are you curious about the evolution of MFOA’s training programs, why MFOA’s policy work looks the way it does or care to stroll down memory lane? Then you should read all about the past, present and future of MFOA! Staff have compiled the Association’s history through minutes of historical Board meetings and summarized them into a dynamic PowerPoint presentation. It reviews our work, our priority municipal finance issues and organizational changes from 1982 to present that define the mature Association.

The past, present and future of MFOA is based on available historic documents with a few holes filled in through individual interviews. Because many of the key figures were not available for questioning, no full first hand explanation was possible in some areas.
