The Ministry of Finance yesterday issued 2019 allocation notices from the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF). The total funding envelope to municipalities will decrease by $5 million to $505 million and will be distributed to 389 municipalities. OMPF funding will again be reviewed in 2020.

While AMCTO is pleased the current Government recognizes the importance of maintaining this vital fund, AMCTO continues to caution the Government on any future reductions and cuts in transfer payments. Many of the province's municipalities, especially communities located in rural and northern Ontario, heavily rely on OMPF. Any reductions could be significantly damaging to their overall budgets. As recommended in the association’s 2019 Pre-Budget Submission, municipal transfer payments must be protected.
