Back to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing Summary page

This program works with municipalities to increase municipal investment readiness, asset management capacity and long-term financial stability to maximize their contribution to the Province’s economic agenda. It oversees the implementation of the Municipal Act, the Planning Act, the Housing Services Act and related legislation, policies and programs. It also develops and oversees the implementation of the Province’s Building Code. In addition, through policy and program development, it supports key government initiatives such as energy and water conservation, greenhouse-gas reduction, source water protection and barrier-free accessibility in the built environment. This program is a primary conduit of intelligence between the Province and key stakeholders, including municipalities, Aboriginal communities and the building sector, to support decision making and policy development. It also leads the Province’s one-window land-use planning system and administers provincial disaster assistance programs to help municipalities and individuals recover quickly from tornados, floods and other natural disasters.
