2019 Regional government review

The Ontario government’s review of 8 regional governments.

In early 2019, the Ontario government conducted the Regional Government Review to examine the governance, decision-making, and service delivery functions of 8 regional municipalities and their lower-tier municipalities. This included Peel Region, Brampton, Caledon, and Mississauga.

The purpose of the review was "to help ensure that these municipalities are working effectively and efficiently and can continue to provide the vital services that communities depend on." The province held in-person consultations to hear directly from organizations and individuals who live, work, and spend time in the municipalities covered by the review. A public consultation meeting with the provincial advisors took place on May 8, 2019.

On October 25, 2019, the Ontario government announced its decision related to the Regional Government Review.

The Ontario government did not make any broad changes to regional governance in Ontario. Peel Region, together with the Brampton, Caledon, and Mississauga, continued to operate without any changes to governance.
