Help inform the Provincial Government's review of eight regional municipalities and Simcoe County, and their lower-tiers. This includes Oxford County and all of the lower tiers (Tillsonburg, Woodstock, Ingersoll, Blandford-Blenheim, Norwich, South-West Oxford, East-Zorra Tavistock and Zorra).

Ontario is launching online consultation for the regional government review of eight regional municipalities and Simcoe County, and their lower-tiers. In total, 82 municipalities are included in the review.

We invite you to share your thoughts on the municipalities where you live, work or spend time. We want to hear your views on the way your municipal elected representatives make their decisions and represent your community. We also want your thoughts and observations on the efficiency, effectiveness and cost of the various municipal services that your municipalities provide.

The objective of this review is to ensure that these municipalities are providing the vital services that residents and local businesses depend on.

The deadline for providing comments is April 23, 2019.
