Abstract

This paper examines the Ontario government’s proposed major changes to the local government of Ottawa-Carleton with respect to the political structure and the distribution of responsibilities. An analysis of three previous studies of regional government in the municipality was conducted. The findings reveal that a two-tier structure of local government is acceptable and the proposed changes would empower the regional government, although some minor changes regarding the delivery of services are required.
