The Ministry of Government Relations would like to hear your feedback on the municipal public accounts project.
In 2020, amendments to the The Municipalities Act and The Northern Municipalities Act, 2010 added regulatory authority to establish public accounts for all municipalities. This section of the legislation has not yet been proclaimed. When the legislative amendments come into force, all municipalities will be required to prepare public accounts annually and make them available to the public. Regulations will set out the specific requirements and the thresholds of each requirement for which details need to be reported.
Your feedback and input will help the ministry to shape its proposed requirements for the public accounts. Please review the Municipal Public Accounts Discussion Paper before completing the survey.
Feedback will be collected until June 30, 2021.
