Institute on Municipal Finance & Governance

IMFG focuses on the fiscal health and governance challenges facing large cities and city-regions. The Institute’s mandate is to conduct independent research, spark and inform public debate, and to engage the academic and policy communities around important issues of municipal finance and governance. In Canada and abroad, cities are central to the economic prosperity and social vitality of countries. To create the conditions for economic competitiveness and offer a high quality of life that will attract and retain residents and businesses, cities need to build and maintain infrastructure, and deliver a wide range of services.
