Shared Services

Intermunicipal Collaboration Frameworks (ICFs) must specify what and how services are funded and delivered with other municipalities that share a common boundary.  They must align with the requirements outlined in Part 17.2 of the Municipal Government Act.

ICFs are intended to: 

  • provide for integrated and strategic planning, delivery and funding of intermunicipal services
  • allocate scarce resources efficiently in the providing local services
  • ensure municipalities contribute funding to services that benefit their residents
