Ontario communities are facing unprecedented challenges as a result of COVID-19. Municipal councils and municipal public servants play a key role in responding to the crisis, managing in difficult times, and providing leadership to restore economic activity and prosperity when the crisis ends.

“There is no place better prepared than Ontario to respond to the COVID-19 emergency, manage through it effectively, and to rebuild prosperity through a period of recovery. Municipalities will support the province, our communities, and enterprises large and small, every step of the way.”
Jamie McGarvey
AMO President and Mayor, Town of Parry Sound
