Municipalities are facing increasing cost pressures to provide services for infrastructure, environment, housing, social services, immigrant settlement, emergency and protective services and in other areas to improve the overall quality of life in their communities.

We need coherent and progressive national policies on social, environmental and urban issues - and funding for programs to match these policies.  Unless this is done, local governments will continue to face ever increasing challenges and costs to improve the quality of life in their communities with very limited revenue sources.
