 City Mayors: Canadian local government
Whether a local municipality in Canada is termed a city, a town or a township is determined by its size; when there is another level of municipal government, such as a county or region, involved in providing services to residents, those three (cities, towns and townships) are also referred to as ‘lower tier’ municipalities.
Counties – usually ones in rural areas – or regions may be involved in the provision of services to residents and businesses when it is more efficient, or legislated for whatever reason, to provide some services over an area that encompasses more than one local municipality.
Decades of fiscal restraint on municipal governments by the federal and provincial governments in Canada have reduced transfers and almost certainly increased the ‘downloading’ of responsibilities on municipalities; at the same time, they have, in concert with slow income growth, induced an environment that is hostile to increases in local own revenues.
