The Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance (IMFG) is the only organization of its kind in North America, dedicated exclusively to the municipal finance and governance challenges faced by large cities and city-regions in Canada and around the world. IMFG’s approach is multi-faceted: it publishes independent, evidence-based research; promotes high-level discussion among Canada’s government, academic, corporate, and community leaders through conferences, seminars, and roundtables; supports graduate and post-doctoral students to build Canada’s cadre of municipal finance and governance experts; and hosts visiting scholars to share perspectives from other cities.
