This program is the ministry's interface with municipal clients responsible for providing services and implementing programs within Municipal Services and Building Regulation core businesses.

Its main priorities are as follows: to oversee the implementation of the Municipal Act, the Planning Act, the Housing Services Act, the Building Code Act and related legislation, regulations, policies and programs; to strengthen municipal capacity to achieve financial sustainability, prosperity and resiliency; to lead the province's one-window land-use planning and assist municipalities in delivering their full land-use planning authority; to support or coordinate the delivery of education and training to municipal clients; and to protect public safety in buildings. 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 manages the ministry's Order-in-Council Emergency Management Program.
