Its main priorities are to oversee the implementation of the Municipal Act, the Planning Act, the Housing Services Act, the Building Code Act and related legislation, policies and programs; to strengthen municipal capacity to achieve financial sustainability, prosperity and resiliency; to lead the province’s one-window land-use planning system and assist municipalities in delivering their full land-use planning authority; and to support or coordinate the delivery of education and training to municipal clients. This program also supports key government initiatives such as renewable energy, water conservation, source water protection and barrier-free accessibility in the built environment. It administers numerous transfer payment programs, including provincial disaster assistance programs, and it manages the ministry’s Order-in-Council Emergency Management Program.
