Local municipalities to benefit from Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund allocations
TORONTO – Local municipalities received some good news on Oct. 29, as the province announced they are providing $500 million through the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF) in 2021.
Municipalities use OMPF funding to complete major projects and provide services, especially those in rural and northern communities who have smaller tax bases.
A total of 389 municipalities will receive funding, including many midwestern Ontario communities.
“Our government recognizes the importance of certainty and stability for municipalities, particularly in these challenging times,” said Rod Phillips, Ontario’s minister of finance.
“That’s why we are announcing the allocations for the 2021 OMPF today (Oct. 29) — consistent with our commitment last year to provide our partners with the information they need, when they need it to plan their budgets.”
