Our Cities, Our Future:
Addressing the fiscal imbalance in Canada's cities today
In a June 2006 report, mayors from Canada's largest cities addressed the fiscal imbalance that exists between provincial and federal governments and the country's major municipalities.
Titled Our Cities, Our Future
, the report was prepared by the Big City Mayors' Caucu
s (BCMC) of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities
(FCM). It calls on Ottawa and the provinces to provide cities with access to tax revenues that grow with the economy and to implement a permanent national transit program. The June 1, 2006 news release
provides more information and the links below provide access to the English and French version of the report in pdf format.
