This paper examines the extent and nature of intermunicipal partnerships in Durham Region and York Region based on an inventory of public partnerships in the two regions and case studies of five intermunicipal agreements. The findings reveal that if municipalities form public partnerships in certain service areas, cost savings can be achieved while still maintaining individual municipal control and accountability.
