Abstract

This paper examines whether an intergovernmental relations officer is an effective position for local government based on surveys administered to chief administrators in 33 mid-sized Ontario municipalities. The findings reveal that having the position in local government is advantageous and effective for a municipality because it can generate greater opportunities with regards to revenue sourcing from the provincial and federal government.
