Conference Review

AMO Conference Review 2017

Ontario’s 444 municipalities are diverse, vibrant and resourceful. In order to continue to grow as prosperous and engaging communities, it is imperative that municipalities work together in unison with fellow cities and towns, residents, and public-sector officials. Each year, the Association of Municipalities Ontario (AMO) holds a conference to engage stakeholders is conversation surrounding issues facing municipalities across the province. Funding, infrastructure, housing, and sustainability were among the topics discussed this year. In a series of panels, seminars and keynotes, stakeholders shared ideas, issues, and innovative solutions pertaining to the future growth of communities. Innovation is critical to the economic and social health of municipalities; the increasing complexity of issues demands that all organizations, especially municipalities, adapt to changing trends in digital technology, retirement of senior officials, and evolving legislation, among others. The sharing of best practices and tools to overcome present-day challenges is imperative for effective policy development planning and, through collaborative efforts, Ontario’s municipalities will continue to excel in service delivery and economic development.
