The Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF)
In the 2019 Ontario Budget, the new government notes in the section on Renewing the Partnership with Municipalities that it is this government’s commitment to “driving greater efficiencies and value for money,” which they say will require a commitment from all partners, which includes municipalities. Throughout the budget, and suggested by the volume of ongoing and upcoming consultations, the Province signals that it is looking for efficiencies in all areas; this includes long-standing funding and governance arrangements.
In December 2018, then-Minister of Finance Vic Fedeli sent a letter to Councils announcing that the OMPF would be under review. MFOA noted the importance of the OMPF in our pre-budget submission.
MFOA continues to advocate on behalf of our members. We will update this page with resources and news related to the OMPF. For any questions please contact Shira Babins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
