The Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP) is an Ontario government initiative, led by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. MPMP requires all municipalities (upper and lower-tier municipalities) to measure their performance in eight municipal service areas. Click on the links below for the Town's current MPMP report, which compares previous years' measures:
Every municipality in Ontario is required to report on efficiency and effectiveness measures to their taxpayers.
The goals of the program are to give taxpayers a greater understanding of what services they receive for their tax dollars and to promote open accountable local governments. The program is not intended to be an exercise in comparison between municipalities because there are a number of factors that will influence a municipality's measure including accounting practices, service levels, etc. The program is intended to provide municipalities with a tool to share and compare results and best practices.
Performance measures for services such as Police and Social Services are the responsibility of the Regional Municipality of York.* external link
