Who we are

With close to 2,000 members representing 90% of Canada's population, we are the national voice of municipal government.

Our mission

We are the national leader and voice of Canadian municipalities, shaping the national agenda and fostering strong and effective local governments.

What we do

We advocate in Ottawa on behalf of our members, making sure municipal priorities are reflected in federal policies and programs. Our programs provide funding and support capacity building that empowers local experts to focus on solving challenges in communities across Canada.

Our governance

Our Board of Directors has 75 elected municipal officials and affiliate members from across Canada. They develop policies and sets priorities that reflect our members' positions on issues that concern municipal governments across the country.

We fill board positions through elections held at our Annual Conference and Trade Show. Affiliate members and designated positions are not elected.

The President, First Vice President, Second Vice President and Third Vice President are elected at large. The Past President is automatically appointed.
