Many Canadian municipalities have taken hits to their budgets due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But what has the effect been on municipalities around the world? Have municipalities in different countries fared better than others? What accounts for any differences? What needs to be done to ensure municipalities bounce back?

On October 26, this webinar will explore the above questions through a discussion with experts that have worked in Latin America, Africa, Europe, and North America. This is the second of two events exploring the effects of COVID-19 on municipal finance. For more information on the first event, visit
