Municipal governments across Canada are increasingly looking to inter-municipal agreements as a way to share the costs and delivery of some local services. As this practice increases, it is important to have a better understanding of the benefits and consequences of service sharing in Canadian communities. How well are these agreements working? What challenges do municipalities face? What are the pitfalls of entering into these arrangements? This half-day conference brings together academics and practitioners to examine inter-municipal agreements and service sharing in Canadian municipalities and Indigenous communities.

Seating is limited and registration is required.
