Launches Online Consultation for Residents, Businesses and Stakeholders
March 14, 2019
Queen’s Park – Your government is seeking advice from residents about how to improve governance, decision-making and service delivery for regional governments and their member municipalities.
Everyone who lives or works in Oakville North-Burlington is invited to share their thoughts at http://ontario.ca/regionalgovernment. The deadline to submit comments is April 23, 2019.
“We promised the people of Ontario that all levels of government would work harder, smarter and more efficiently,” said Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
In addition to meeting with municipalities and stakeholder groups, Special Advisors Michael Fenn and Ken Seiling will assess the feedback received through the online consultation. They will provide their advice and recommendations to Minister Clark this summer.
The government is committed to working with municipalities to help ensure that they have effective local governance and decision-making, and are providing services quickly and efficiently.
Quote from Effie Triantafilopoulos MPP:
“I encourage everyone in Oakville North-Burlington to take part in the online consultation on regional government. The future of our communities is up to their residents and your government wants your input.”
“Our government is putting people first by seeking local input on how to improve governance, decision-making and service delivery for regional governments and their member municipalities.”
