Municipal Government Act Review

When the Municipal Government Act (MGA) came into effect on April 1st, 1999, it signified a major breakthrough for municipalities. The end product of a four-year joint municipal-provincial legislative review resulted in a single piece of legislation representing the best efforts of municipal and provincial leaders to develop a modern legal framework to guide municipalities.
