MUNICIPAL PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENTS
The Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP) is an initiative of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing which requires all municipalities to begin collecting data, measuring and reporting their performance in core municipal areas.
Comparisons between municipalities should be approached with an understanding that a higher or lower number does not necessarily indicate better or worse performance. Many factors including: environmental issues, geographic issues (such as the balance of rural and urban), accounting methods and allocation of corporate cost and overhead methods can affect the results for each municipality.
