Premier Doug Ford addresses Ontario’s municipal leaders

OTTAWA, Ontario  — Premier Doug Ford delivered his first keynote address to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s 2018 Annual Conference, where he committed that the Government for the People will work with municipalities to deliver better and more efficient services for people across the province.

“Municipalities are the closest link to the day-to-day lives of Ontarians, and we share a common goal: our commitment to working for the people, and respecting the taxpayer,” said Premier Ford. “Through open and collaborative efforts with our municipal partners, we can help more people in more communities across Ontario.”

The AMO Annual Conference gives delegates from municipalities across the province the opportunity to network, share ideas and work together to address emerging issues faced by their communities. Premier Ford and his ministers spent time at the conference speaking directly with delegates and listening to their concerns.

“As a former Mayor of Brockville, I know the challenges municipalities are facing today,” said Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.

“This conference gives us an excellent opportunity to not only listen, but work together to develop solutions. Municipalities make decisions on service delivery and infrastructure investments that have a real impact on people’s daily lives. By working together, we can empower them to deliver better services, and make better use of hard-earned tax dollars.”

Quick Facts

  • AMO is a non-profit organization representing almost all of Ontario’s 444 municipal governments.
  • About 1,900 participants from hundreds of municipalities and organizations from across Ontario are expected to participate in the conference.
