2018 OMPF Allocation Notice - Line Item Descriptions

A – The OMPF grants are described in detail in the 2018 OMPF Technical Guide - this document can be found on the Ministry of Finance's website at: http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/budget/ompf/2018

A5 – If applicable, reflects the amount of transitional support provided to assist the municipality in adjusting to the redesigned OMPF program, and/or changes in municipal circumstances.

B1 – Sum of 2018 OMPF grants (Equal to Line A).

B2 – Estimated 2018 benefit of the Province's upload of social assistance benefit program costs.

C1 – The estimated 2018 municipal benefit resulting from the upload of public health costs from a provincial share of 50 per cent in 2004 to 75 per cent in 2007. In two-tier systems, this benefit is identified at the upper-tier level. Actual municipal savings may not correspond with the Allocation Notice due to budget approvals made by the local Board of Health. Municipalities may provide additional funding beyond their obligated cost share or receive additional savings through other provincial grants for public health programs and initiatives. Any additional municipal funding or savings are not included in the calculation of the public health figure.

C2 – The estimated 2018 municipal benefit of the Province's 50 per cent share of land ambulance funding relative to its share in 2005. This incremental increase in land ambulance funding delivers on the Province's commitment to strengthen land ambulance services and maintain the 50:50 sharing of land ambulance costs.

D2 – Refers to the total assessment for a municipality weighted by the tax ratio for each class of property (including payments in lieu of property taxes retained by the municipality) divided by the total number of households.

D5 – The Northern and Rural Municipal Fiscal Circumstances Index (MFCI) measures a municipality's fiscal circumstances relative to other northern and rural municipalities in the province, and ranges from 0 to 10. A lower MFCI corresponds to relatively positive fiscal circumstances, whereas a higher MFCI corresponds to more challenging fiscal circumstances. For additional information, see the 2018 OMPF Technical Guide.

D6 – Represents the guaranteed level of support the municipality will receive from the Province through the 2018 OMPF. For additional information, see the 2018 OMPF Technical Guide.
